"Oh my God, I have been so anxious about being able to vote. ... It's such a relief to be able to do it. This is the happiest vote I ever cast in my life." — Annette DeBona of Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., voting in an area hit hard by Superstorm Sandy.
The 73-year-old restaurant worker was so worried about not being able to vote that she called the police department several days in advance, as well as her church, to make absolutely sure she knew where to go and when.
Her choice for president: Mitt Romney.
