Voters from across York County shared their choices with The Herald on Saturday as they left polling places. Here's a sampling.
"I don't always agree with any candidate, but I have to figure out the one I agree most with. I think morality is a really big issue with me. I want somebody I can trust."
-- McCain supporter Grace Ebersold Ulbricht, 78, who is retired and lives in Clover
"My heart said Huckabee and my mind said McCain. I was still flip-flopping when I was in here looking at the names. He'd beat Hillary or Obama. We need a winner."
Never miss a local story.
-- McCain supporter Rick Foor, 36, an information technology recruiter who lives in Fort Mill
"I liked what I seen on TV and what he says. It was between him and Ron Paul. I seen Chuck Norris standing up behind him on TV and I like Chuck. Ain't that a crazy reason?"
-- Huckabee supporter Ronald Wadas, 68, who is retired and lives in York
"I like McCain, but I really feel like God raised up Mike Huckabee. He stands for a lot of things I believe in. I've been praying about it for a long time."
-- Huckabee supporter Sandra Ware, 65, a prayer response specialist at Billy Graham Evangelistic Association who lives in Fort Mill
"I did a lot of checking on the Internet, looking at sites. I voted for the guy who's probably going to lose, but he's still the best guy."
-- Fred Thompson supporter Owen Watts, 59, a home inspector who lives in York
"It was tough picking a candidate, quite frankly. Both my husband and I got outsourced this year. We both lost our jobs. I wouldn't be unhappy if either Huckabee or Romney won. I really respect McCain for his military issues, but I don't think he's conservative enough."
-- Huckabee supporter Denise Polsgrove, 51, a former information technology support analyst who lives in Fort Mill
"Even though he's older, I think (McCain) stands on his issues. I think he's solid. I haven't seen him waver a lot and I agree with a lot of his issues. I don't agree with all of them, but if I can only pick one, he's the one I picked."
-- McCain supporter Robin Patrick, 49, a homemaker who lives in York
"He supports the war and I have a son who is in the Army. I think supporting the war is going to be one of the main issues. We are in the war, and without our soldiers, we wouldn't have what we have (and) be able to cast a vote."
-- Huckabee supporter Lisa Colwell, 42, a student who lives in Rock Hill
