The polls have only been open for a few hours and we expect millions more Americans to vote before the day is over. The good news is, with more polling locations and longer hours in many states, it’s never been easier to vote. Folks across the country are sharing their experiences, saying that voting was “quick,” “easy” and “made me feel great!”
