SWAMPSCOTT– The polls at First Church in Swampscott saw brisk business Tuesday night as residents lined up to take a ballot. One of the voters was Ryan January, a catcher in the Arizona Diamondbacks minor league system, who was casting his first vote in a presidential race. While the 19-year-old won’t say who he voted for, he liked the passion of both presidential candidates.
“It was a tough decision for some people, myself not so much,” he said. “They were great fighters and it was fun to watch them battle it out.”
Stephen Mosho, a retiree at 66, said he voted for Trump. “They both are a little questionable, but I trust him more than I trust Hillary,” he said.
