— There was a steady stream of voters casting their ballots Tuesday at the Dingman Township 1 polling place in the Milford Bible Church.

One voter waiting patiently in line was Larry, who told the Courier, “I’m here to vote because it’s our obligation and our given right.”

Larry said he doesn’t vote often in mid-term elections, “but this one I think is a little more important.” He didn’t want to elaborate. However, he conceded the country seems divided.

“If we had a strong third party, we’d all benefit," he said.
