— May 16 was the first time voters returned to the polls since last November's momentous election.

What were voters thinking? Marilyn Rosenthal asked a few citizens as they emerged from completing their civic duty.

Peg Schaffer, Dingman Township Did not vote for all candidates on straight ticket and did not do write-ins

"Low turnout for this primary."

"I am a life long Republican, but I'm concerned about the state of our international dealings. The economy is taking a positive turn, in spite of our national leader, and locally I think everyone is doing a great job."

Carolyn Drennan, Dingman Township Did straight ticket with a couple of write-ins

"Since the last election, we need to change control and parties."

"I am disappointed in Trump, but more disappointed in Congress in that they are doing nothing. If people are not happy, it is not enough to march, I hope that people get out and vote."

Eileen Harrington, Milford Borough Not straight ticket — wrote in some candidates

"I've become very disinchanted with the Democrats- they don't have the same principles as I do."

"I think Trump is doing fairly well. I'm a little concerned. However, I did vote for him because of his business experience. But I do think we should give him a chance."

Marilyn Schultz, Milford Township "I did write-in."

"I love the Delaware Valley School District and the people that I voted for who are running for the School Board."

"I did not vote for Trump, but I was willing to give him a chance. But, he's not doing very well. He goes out on his own and embarrasses us all."
