As the time vote neared an end, a small handful of last minute voters trickled in to the Centre Region Senior Center on 131 S. Fraser St.
Busy schedules forced some students to race the clock in order to let their vote be counted.
In addition to a long day of classes and meetings, Andrea Soto wasn't even sure she would be able to vote because of some misleading voter ID information.
Still, Soto (senior-hospitality) was determined to vote and made it to the polling place with just 10 minutes to spare.
"It's important for people our age to be aware of the issues and actually go out and vote," she said.
Although there is no longer a line for the center's 6 polling stations, volunteers report that there have been 950 voters throughout the day, as of 7:59 pm. They have also received 26 absentee ballots.
