Despite the freezing cold temperatures, New Castle County residents left their homes to perform their civic duty and vote today.
Delawareans throughout Northern Delaware packed the polls for their chance to have their voices heard, and many of them seemed to be rooting for the Republican ticket.
Outside the First Unitarian Church in Wilmington, Estelle, who would not give her last name, said she voted for Mitt Romney. "I would go back and vote Republican 50 more times if I could," she said.
Outside the PAL center in Hockessin, more people seemed to be rooting for the GOP.
"I am voting straight Republican," Kim Caputo of Hockessin said.
Tom Grabowski echoed her sentiments: "I voted for Romney and Greg Lavelle," he said.
Lavelle, who is challenging Sen. Mike Katz for the District 4 State Senator seat, was greeting constituents outside the First Unitarian Church off of Rt. 202.
He said he was excited to see the high turnout of voters today. "It is always good when they exceed the average."
Lavelle, who was in high spirits, said that whether he wins or loses, he and his family are going to Disney World. "[The outcome] is a no lose proposition," he joked.
Dr. Mike Katz cast his vote at Methodist Country House in Greenville with his wife, Trish. He said despite the country's discontent with President Obama, he does that believe it will influence Delawareans to vote Republican. "They will focus on the interest of the community regardless of party," he said.
Katz said that if he is not re-elected, he still has his career as a physician, which he sees as a form of community service, and most importantly, his family.
