Here's what York County voters had to say about their votes in the race for the 5th Congressional District between incumbent Democrat John Spratt and Republican Mick Mulvaney:
"I don't want a single Democrat in Washington. I normally don't feel that way, but this year is different."
David Ward of Fort Mill, who voted for Mulvaney
"He's a great guy and a great congressman ... an honest man."
Sara Shive of Rock Hill, who voted for Spratt
"I simply don't trust Obama and the Democrats right now."
Shelton Quarles of Fort Mill, who voted for Mulvaney
"From my observation, he's done a good job for the people of York County and the people of South Carolina. He's a true public servant."
Fred Solomon of Fort Mill, who voted for Spratt
Spratt was "a big voice" behind health care legislation. "I don't trust that. He didn't take into account what was best for our state."
Deanne Kelly of Clover, who voted for Mulvaney
"I don't believe his ideas are outdated or corrupt in any way, as has been publicized by the other party. I believe, through his experience in working for human services, that he is for all human rights."
Susan Bullard of Fort Mill, who voted for Spratt
"My concerns this year are Social Security, Medicare and I don't like the arrogance that we see in Washington right now and for the last 18 months - and I voted accordingly."
Jack Carroll, 72, of York, who voted for Mulvaney
"After three decades of work, that's a lot of time. He must have been doing something positive."
Shelton Adams, 33, of York, who voted for Spratt
"John Spratt had enough time. We need a change. ... It's a free country, let's keep it that way."
Eric Johnson of Rock Hill, who voted for Mulvaney
"The last couple of years have been difficult, and he did a good job."
Kathryn Strohl of Clover, who voted for Spratt
"Spratt voted with Nancy Pelosi on everything and the South Carolina constituents were telling him not to. We need to repeal the health care bill ... and get rid of socialist government put in place by the Democrats."
Laurie Comer of York, who voted for Mulvaney
"Our (health care) system should be like the one in Canada. Not everyone can afford insurance or get on Medicare."
Marcus Parker, 28, of York, who voted for Spratt
"If they're in Washington, then they're the problem!"
Joe Simpson of Fort Mill, who voted for Mulvaney
"To me, this entire race was geared towards parties (instead of issues). John Spratt is focused on what is at hand - people losing their jobs, losing their homes."
Cheron Sanders, 35, of York, who voted for Spratt
"Spratt voted for most of Obama's packages. It's time for a change."
Frank Falls of Clover, who voted for Mulvaney
"He is for the health care reform bill that gives widespread coverage to everyone. I am part of the middle class, and I think the Democrats' agenda is more in touch with us."
Melissa Brown of Fort Mill, who voted for Spratt
"I am hoping that this is the night for Mulvaney and a lot of other Republicans. It is terrible out there for business right now. We need change."
Glen Small of Van Wyck, who voted for Mulvaney
"We need someone who understands Washington but doesn't get sucked in."
Sally Shive of Rock Hill, who voted for Spratt
