Ray Scott, a salesman, said he was still unsure of his choice even as voting had already started.
"Money is the big factor so it's hard to decide," he said. "I want to beat Obama. Four and out!" He said his motto is the same as the state's "live free or die" and Obama doesn't seem to agree.

Buck Mercier, voted for Huntsman. He's a hunter and a fisherman who said he believes in the right to own a gun. "Anyone against guns doesn't get my vote," he said.

"I don't know. I got 3 candidates. Ron Paul. Perry. Santorum. Not Romney," Kurt Schelzel said.
