KATHRINE HOF: I was excited. I've been excited for months. I woke up, and I was like, it's the 19th. I can go early vote.

ILEAN ZAMLUT: Everybody's been really respectful, no issues. The voting has gone on flawlessly. There's a drop-off van where people don't even have to get out of their car in this weather. I think this weather makes a great argument for vote by mail. I mean, it was torrential this morning, with heavy winds, so-- but the turnout has been great, steady. The line has been consistent since 6:45 this morning.

JAMES CAMPBELL: I couldn't tell you how important it is. People died for this right, and it's something that we should cherish and take advantage of and use. I mean, it's our future. It's all of our futures.
