With 30 voters lined up at the polls by 6 a.m., Bill and Pam Borders, Bowling Green, were the first in line to “change our great nation.”

“How does Trump say it again? We’re gonna clean out the system?” Bill Borders said, laughing. He said he will be voting for Donald Trump this morning.

“We want a complete change, a fresh start, starting really with Washington.” Bill said.

His wife, Pam Borders, stood by her husband’s side and nodded to every word.

“Every vote counts, that’s why we’re here.” Pam Borders said.
