Voters line up in Mississippi

Posted: Updated:

BRANDON, Miss. (AP) - Polling stations had long lines early Tuesday in Mississippi, and almost all anyone wanted to talk about was the race for president.

Forty-3-year-old Randy Vinzant, who owns Southeastern Signs, says the economy and taxes are the nation's biggest issues. He says he's voting for Mitt Romney because he thinks Romney's tax policies would be better for his business, which has six employees.

Thirty-9-year-old Orlando Hill says he believes President Barack Obama needs four more years to finish what he started. Hill is in the Army Reserve and a psychological technician for U.S. Veterans Affairs in Mississippi.

He said the sluggish economy caused him to file for bankruptcy to save his house, but he still believes Obama can turn things around.
