Election day has been wet and cold, but there were a steady stream of voters at North Atlanta High School in Atlanta.

Elizabeth Becker said the line wasn’t long .“ I actually tried several days to vote earlier. I’m a senior and I tried to get there earlier, but the lines were so very long.” she said.

Laurie Moravetz explains why she waited to vote on election day. “Cause I wasn’t really sure where to go for early voting, and I just didn’t take the time to figure it out.

Naomi Davila is the precinct manager. She expects an even bigger turnout this year than for the last presidential election.

She says “2008, maybe 75 percent of the precinct came out. There’s four thousand plus in North Atlanta High School. This year I believe we’ll get everybody. Or at least to the four thousand mark.”

The big winners may be the parent teacher student organization of the high school. Organizers set up a bake sale outside the voting room. They are expecting to bring in more than three thousand dollars from hungry voters.
