The race for the Howard County Board of Education is one to watch, but voters there said on Election Day they're more focused on the top of the ticket.

"The negativity and the divisiveness of the country. Instead of coming together to fix problems, we're just getting further and further apart," voter Brad Hubbard said.

"It's been really hard on friends. You can't really talk politics with each other because it's very divisive and you'll either loose friends or lot of hostility going on," voter Brandon Walker said. "So, it's better for everyone that it's done."
