OMAHA (KPTM)- Some voters have already cast their vote in early. And they're hoping other voters have done their research before turning in their ballot.
"[We need someone] that can actually reach out and touch Americans saying there is a good way, there is a better way and there's a way we can go together and do it," said early voter Laurie Boespflug.
For many American's, Monday's debate was both parties final chance to do just that. But for early voters their decision was made long ago.
"If we're not aware what's going on in politics we're going to lose our liberties," said Boespflug.
Early voting in Douglas County is at a record high. Representatives from both presidential parties told me the previous debates have played a key factor in those numbers.
"These debates have really changed the race. You look at some of the polling that's come out since Governor Romney very strong first debate and the entire race has really been changed," said Ryan Williams, spokesman Governor Romney's campaign.
"As relation to Iraq, he called the presidents decision to withdraw our troops and end that war they're responsibility tragic. There will be star choice to make and that's why people are going to the polls so early in such wide numbers because the president has been such a strong, decisive leader," said Beau Biden, representative President Obama's campaign.
Some voters say they wanted to get their vote in early before all the polls and heavy bashing took away from the bigger issues.
"Governor Romney—took him 24 hours to go to our closets ally, Great Britain, go to London and within 24 hours offend our closest ally, walked out in front of 10 Downing Street, tell the International Press Core that he just mailed a British intelligence agency which is something you simply don't do and when asked what our biggest GOP political threat was, he said Russia. We've been here before with Bush," said Biden.
"President Obama is not laying out a vision for a second term in these debates, he's not talking about any kind of new ideas. Because the president is out of and out of time. And Governor Romney has a new plan for the country, one that will take us towards a stronger foreign policy, 12 million new jobs and an economic turnaround that will benefit every American," said Williams.
But in the end, voters say they just want one thing.
"I'm hoping to find some truth somewhere. I don't know if I will but I would love to," said early voter Bill Kroupa.
"I just want them to tell the truth," said Gerald Gieger.
Truth they're hoping they're vote will find.
Can't find something?
