On Election Day, voters at Bethel United Church of Christ discussed what candidate they supported. Jeremy Matlock, 38, said he voted for Mitt Romney because his favors lowering taxes. If Romney lowers taxes in the state then it would encourage more businesses to come to this region and improve the job market, Matlock said.
"Under his leadership, the economy will be better." he said.
Matlock says he also hopes Romney would repeal the new healthcare law passed during Obama's administration.
Former business owner Wendye Roche said she also voted for Romney because of his business experience.
"I don't like the way things have been. We need a real change," she said.
Roche, whose son has been unemployed for a while said Obama's policies have not done enough to turn this economy around.
"We need something done and I don't think Obama has done anything."
Alex Stammler, on the other hand, cast her vote for the president.
Like Roche, Stammler said she is concerned about the economy but said the president can't be entirely blamed for the situation. Stammler, who is in college right now, said she is also concerned whether or not she'll be able to find a job when she graduates.
"I don't think it's anything to do with Obama. He was handed a bad situation, there's only so much he can do," she said.
The 24-year-old said Romney did not do enough to explain his policies or how he would improve the economic situation in the country.
"I feel he never talked about his policies. I think he just said what people wanted to hear from him," she said.
