NORFOLK, Va. - At Chrysler Museum of Art voters paint their own picture of who they'd like to see in office.
"I've been a democrat since birth," said Joan Damsey, a die-hard
Democrat. Damsey believes low voter turn out is even more of a
reason to cast a ballot if you want to win in November.
"Bob McDonnell, who's a fine person, is from this area so you had to pick someone who could beat him," Damsey said.
The turnout was low. 32 voters an hour showed up at the museum in Portsmouth. There were 22 at John Tyler Elementary school.
It's still better than what many expected and still a reason to vote.
"One vote can make a difference," said one woman.
With State Senator Creigh Deeds, Terry McAuliffe and Brian Moran
sharing relatively the same views - except for off shore drilling
and energy - voters looked for the one thing that would make their
candidate stand out.
"I tried to pay as much attention to the different commercials and what not. And I did a little research and was able to make a decision," said Larry Gump.
