Social media reacts to millions of Americans using their right to vote Tuesday and heading to the polls. Even though its just the beginning of a long day for both democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, there’s a buzz in the air to get this day done and over with.
According to the self-proclaimed wordsmith, Christine Sirois, there’s a 2 hour plus wait in her NYC borough to cast a ballot this election day.
Saying in her social media post, “Inching forward. About to hit hour 2 in line. #ElectionDay #VotingDay #Election2016”
