Everybody has been really happy and they just said that they want to go, they want to vote this time. We’ve had a couple people that already voted and came in this morning and as they walk in, the workers in the office have clapped for them, announcing that it’s their first-time voting. So, it’s been kind of exciting. Everywhere else you heard that people are voting like crazy and it looks like it’s going to happen here in the Ohio Valley.
