The First Votes

From NBC's Kelly O'Donnell and Kim Sneed

Crawford, TX -- The First Couple voted at the Crawford Fire Station, in Precinct 80 for McClennan County, Texas. The Bushes are among 1,847 registered voters who will cast their ballots electronically. Election officials here expect 65% turnout, and say the voting system does provide a paper trail for votes. "Government is only as good as the willingness of all people to participate," Bush said. "No matter what your affiliation... do your duty."
