The polls closed at 6 p.m. in Eastern Kentucky.

The votes are in! But which candidates will win?

Some voters say they want change.

"These people in our office now are bad. We need some new people. If we get new people, then we'll have better laws. And that's why I voted. To get some new people in here," said Brenda Rose, a voter who lives in Corbin.

While others voted because they always do.

"I vote all the time. I don't think I've missed a vote in 20 years," said David Cox, a voter who lives in Corbin.

People say they vote because they can and in order to make a difference, they have to take advantage of that right.

"I've told people they should come out and vote because that's their right to come, and if they don't vote, they ain't got no reason to complain," said Sandra Davis, a voter who lives in Middlesboro.

Voting enables people to cast their opinions about elected officials, which is something Jarrod Hunt feels strongly about.

"It's important for us to go out and let our voices be heard. And it's my way of sticking it to the man," said Jarrod Hunt, a voter who lives in Pikeville.

And everyone has a different way of voting.

Some say voting straight ticket is not always the best.

"Like today, there was one off of the normal ticket that I vote, but I supported that person," said Tracey McLain, a voter who lives in London.

"I don't care how you vote as long as you vote. Just vote and get your people in," said Rose.

Excited voters are anticipating this election's results.

We will have the election's results as they come in throughout the night.
