The lines weren't too long at the Union Drive Community Center this morning. People seemed to be waiting less than 10 minutes, even if they needed to register and vote.

First-time voter John Lupkes, 18, a freshman from Latimer, Iowa, is an Agricultural & Food Sciences major. He said he wanted to wait until election day to vote. In close elections, such as the Bush-Gore race,  he said, individual voices can make a difference. He said he decided to vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, in part because of their stance on abortion.

"The issue that mattered to me was if I keep education up, and then also dealing with Roe v. Wade. I'm a Christian son of a farmer and what it is, is that I see life at conception not at any point in between that, so it pretty much makes sense for me."
