Heading into the Nov. 2 general election, what has been the one factor or factors influencing your voting decision?
“I read up on the issues and the candidates, then I read the recommendations made in our local paper, which I trust. I decided then to follow the recommendations that were made.”
“I really didn’t think there were many choices. Actually, I cast my vote against many of the candidates, not really for any of them.”
“I was really most concerned with the moral issues and the life the candidate led. I didn’t listen to any of their promises. “
“The ads turned me off. I looked for someone who appeared to have the best interests of the state at heart and not interested solely in power.”
“I voted primarily Democrat, but I did look at all the candidates. In one race, specifically, I was concerned with the candidate’s questionable business dealings.”
“Basically, I voted Republican. Washington is out of control, and I think maybe the Republicans can bring some balance to it.”
“I do, to some extent, vote along party lines. However, I am concerned with moral issue and financial responsibility.”
