“I didn’t plan to. Now I’m teetering. I have to decide who’s the rebel. Americans are rebels. I’m the son of an immigrant from Croatia, so I don’t want to throw away my vote. I pray for the people in power. My brother is a soldier. Most of the effect will be overseas.”
~ Alexander Blanc, Fort Montgomery
“I already voted absentee. This time it will actually make a difference because there are very different people running. There’s very much at stake.”
~ Emily Pohl, Hamburg, Germany
“Of course, because I’m for Clinton. Donald Trump has to be stopped, but I would be for Clinton anyway, no matter what.”
~ Richard McDonough, Cold Spring
