MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Just two hours into the early voting and Larry Denham is in line ready to cast his ballot for the November election.

"My mind is made up. I am just looking for this thing to be over with. This is one of the worst, ugliest, dirtiest presidential races that I have ever witnessed," says Denham.

He says he isn't concerned about what could happen in these last two weeks before Election Day.

"These two candidates are...they don't have a lot to be desired from," says Denham.

Faye Hassler has seen plenty of elections, but this one is different.

"It's probably the most important one I have ever voted in," says Hassler.

With a final presidential debate hours away and new information on candidates coming out daily, anything can happen in this year's election.

"There has been a lot of confusion, mudslinging, and we want to a make sure we have the right person in," says Hassler.

Even though polls show a big gap between the top candidates, numbers can change.

It's why other voters say they will wait.

Still, if lines are long for early voting, who knows what it will be like Nov. 8.

"I realize the debate tonight might persuade me differently, but I think it's impossible. I am happy with the candidate I voted for," says Hassler.

"I am going to have to be pleased with whoever gets in there. I am just gonna have to do my part to make things better," says Denham.

There are a lot of people with a lot of concerns about what they have seen during this election. Exactly how that plays out at the polls remains to be seen.
