Ned Butler expressed his frustration on our Facebook page.

"I'm tired of having to choose between the lesser of two evils," he wrote. "As long as we continue to make that choice it will be the only choice we will be offered. We have to beef up our support for third party candidates so that we can have real choices that better reflect what we want for this country."

"I feel this election has been one big circus and, honestly the circus might be more organized than this election," said Antuion Ray. "It is hard to vote for candidates you don't believe in or trust period."

Tiffany Pew says she'll make her decision in the voting booth on Nov. 8th.

"I am very much undecided," she said. "I don't feel like I connect with any of the candidates. I'm hoping once I get into the voting booth, I can decide. I feel like I'm having to choose between the lesser of two evils. Only problem is, I have no idea which candidate that is."

Michelle Lundy Crotts said that she's voting third party this election.

"I'm not an undecided voter. I'm an Unaffiliated voter and this year I'm voting for the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson," she said. "NC is a swing state so 'third party' votes DO count! Gary Johnson is the candidate who's platform most closely matches my political beliefs."

Sarah Brady also voted Johnson.

"The Democrats and Republican platforms have become too focused on social control over society and are causing more problems than they are solving," Brady wrote. "At the very least we need one voice in the room asking IF government intervention is needed, rather than just assuming it is and arguing over how."
