LITTLE FALLS — At least a couple Democratic city residents made their way every few minutes this afternoon into the Little Falls Holy Family Parish Hall to vote in the presidential primaries. 

Polls opened at noon and voters can cast votes until 9 p.m. in both Oneida and Herkimer counties. 

Here's a look at some Little Falls Democrats and their votes: 

* Pat Long voted for Hillary Clinton and said she hopes Clinton can help residents in our region. 

“I think she will do a pretty good job, as long as Bill stays in the background,” she said. “I just want to see what she does for Upstate.” 

* Terry Wren said she had a difficult time deciding whom to vote for but decided to vote for Hillary Clinton. Wren said she wants a president who can deal with the economy and health care. 

“I'm just hoping that we get the right president in there,” she said. 

* John Hart said he voted for Barrack Obama because he presents the best opportunity for change.
“It's the same old stuff in Washington,” Hart said. “Somebody's got to change it.” 

* Karen Dunn said she voted for Barrack Obama because she doesn't support Hillary Clinton. Dunn's 29-year-old son had to move south to find a good job, so her biggest concern is getting more jobs in Upstate New York, she said. 

“There's nothing here,” she said. 

* Mike Liscio said right before voting that he still hadn't made up his mind whom to vote for. Liscio said he is concerned about the handling of Iraq, but the economy is the biggest issue to him. 

“They've got to do something about it, no matter who is the president,” Liscio said.
