    "Feels great," K.J. Wang said early Tuesday morning. "Feels good to hopefully not see any more of those commercials."

    No issues were reported at this voting precinct. By 6:45 A.M. more than 3 dozen people waited in line for the doors to open.

    "The mood has been great," Connie Braceland, a precinct worker, said. I've heard a lot of people say it is a long line but it is worth it."

    "You are here to vote, and it is worth the wait in line," she added.

    By mid-morning, the crowds had thinned out. Those left said they were excited, anxious, and relieved Election Day was finally here.
