2. SOUNDBITE (English) Alvin Li, Michigan Voter:
"I voted for Trump. And I think especially in this, like, age, there wasn't really a good choice for me, like I couldn't really figure out between the two, because I feel like this year specifically was a very, like, clashing and very dueling kind of, like, area. But in general, I think, like, the Republican Party itself fits more of my values."
"You know what? I'm just kind of that type of person. I'm going to move on with my everyday life. If Biden wins, I wish him the best in. And his party. And life goes on."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Chris Reaume, Michigan Voter:
"It depends. I think if Biden wins, I think there might be some (unrest). It's not the Trump supporters that, you know, are going out and do all the damages and such. So, I guess it depends on who wins as to whether there's going to be unrest or something."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Stanley Parker, First-time voter:
"The lines have been pretty smooth sailing for the most part this morning. There haven't been no extra long lines and once the line got started everything has went smoothly.I am a returning citizen and I got my rights restored. I was working with the FRRC and I got my rights restored and this is my first time voting. All my fines and fees were paid and I got a chance to vote. So this is really important to me. And I think it should be very important to everyone else that's around that can vote."
"Since I work so much, I don't have time to early vote, but my friend (inaudible), she was like, oh my God, you have to come out and vote because. So before work. Right. Right now I voted. It was super easy. You know, I thought I was gonna be hard, but it wasn't."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Weston Jones, West Palm Beach, Florida resident:
"I believe that Florida people are going to step up on the plate, you know, and do the right thing. I believe that, you know. And even there's so many of us of different races, but the main thing is that they need to just come on out."
Voters out in force in battleground states of Michigan and Florida where Joe Biden is seeking to win for the Democrats, while President Donald Trump is trying to again seize them for another four years.
Alvin Li, an 18-year-old student at the University of Michigan, is a first-time voter who supports Trump.
"There wasn't really a good choice for me, like I couldn't really figure out between the two," he said after voting in Novi, Michigan. "But in general, I think, the Republican Party itself fits more of my values."
Karan Beaty (BAY'-tee), a 49-year-old paraprofessional at an elementary school, also said she voted for Trump. But she said whoever wins, life will go on.
"I'm just kind of that type of person. I'm going to move on with my everyday life," she told the Associated Press. "If Biden wins, I wish him the best."
While in West Palm Beach, Florida, Leila Zermeno, 18, was unable to early vote because of her busy work schedule. She voted for the first time Tuesday, and said she thinks the youth vote is really important this election.
"It was super easy. You know, I thought I was gonna be hard, but it wasn't," said Zermeno.
Another first time voter, Stanley Parker, is a "returning citizen," having registered since Amendment 4 passed in 2018, restoring felons' voting rights.
"I think it should be very important to everyone else that's around that can vote," said Parker.
Weston Jones says he and his wife voted earlier in the week. Today, he is encouraging his neighbors to come vote by giving rides to the their precinct in West Palm Beach.
"I believe that Florida people are going to step up on the plate, you know, and do the right thing."
In addition to the presidential election, Florida has a handful of close congressional races.
Floridians are also voting on six proposed constitutional amendments, including one that would gradually raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
Republicans will seek to keep their majority in the state House and Senate.
But the contest between Trump and Biden is the main event, and the outcome is anything but clear.
