"It's really exciting because when I turned 18 I was really excited and then I was like, 'Wait I have a couple years to vote'," said Greta Porisch, a first time voter.
For others a time to make history.
"I've been told this is the most important election since 1980," said Matthew Cooksey, who was also voting for the first time.

"We have a service for transportation for for people who cannot get a ride to the polls," said Linda Goolsbee of the Taylor Co. Democratic Committee.

"We need to secure those swing states for Romney to ensure that he wins," said Joy Ellinger, Taylor Co. Republican Chair.
Whatever the approach, both parties are handing out plenty of signs and other propaganda to ensure their message is seen because while some may believe its a done deal,

Others are trying their hardest to prove differently.
"It's a matter of not giving up," said Goolsbee.
No matter what political party, voters are hoping their vote will make the difference.
For thousands in Taylor Co., the earlier the better.
