It's Election Day and voters early Tuesday lined up at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building for the right to make their choices or turn in absentee ballots.
Today's election will determine a large number of state and local issues, as well as who will be president of the United States for the next four years.
Many voters leaving their polling place Tuesday said they enjoyed the experience of voting and preferred doing it in person rather than voting by mail.
They want the interaction with precinct workers, to fill out the ballot and then put it in the box and get their "I voted" sticker.
"I always vote in person. It has more spice to it. It doesn't feel passive," said Eric Moes, before he got on his bike to head for work.
