FRANKLIN - Many polling places around Wisconsin and America were expected to be very busy when they opened around Wisconsin.

In Franklin, that was definitely the case.Turnout was high there.

"I'm praying intently that there be a new administration that can heal some of the country," said Sherry Erickson, who lives in Franklin.

She voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but says she supports Mitt Romney.

"I'm a little bit more conservative, and tend to support that Republican conservative stance."

Kurtis Dandrea had trouble deciding on who he was voting for.

"It was interesting, because they're two great candidates, and it's really hard, and you've got to know the facts between both," explained Dandrea.

Many voters made the hard decision before Election Day.

"That did not decrease the number of people who came out to vote Franklin.

"We expect large crowds, long lines," said Franklin City Clerk Sandy Wesolowski.
