We spoke with one voter, who says these local elections are where you can make a difference in the community.

"They could do things that are good and they could do bad stuff," Orlen Donnelly, local voter, explained. "They could vote in stuff you don't want and you've got to be able to see the difference in the candidates and be able to vote on them. It's not a right exactly it's a privilege."

If you do plan to come out and vote you don't have to go to a designated location, just whichever vote center is closest to you and of course bring proper ID.
