Some dogs run after cars, others run to get treats, but a Fall River, Massachusetts goldendoodle named Oliver Winston Churchill Finelli is running for something a little more prestigious. He may not be your typical paw-litician, but this handsome boy with the esteemed-sounding name, is running for President of the United States of America. And his message is a simple one: Because People Suck.
I picked up my three year old son Brody from daycare Tuesday afternoon and headed to the polls before dinner. On the ride home, I explained to him that before we go in the house, that he and Daddy were going to stop and vote.

It's a long shot and I think people realize that. But, there are people so dead set on Donald Trump not moving into the White House that they'll desperately try anything right now. That's why if you're on social media, it hasn't been a quiet demonstration of protest and petitions.
The election has definitely had an affect on people. You see it all over social media or in just turning on the news with protests whether violent or peaceful.

Sean and Bethany came into the studio yesterday afternoon and said, "listen, this is a big ask but would you be interested..." I was basically like, "stop right there, I'm in!" Next thing I knew I was out bright and early this morning to talk to some of the Capital Regions best on Election Day at the different polling stations.
As election day gets underway Bethany and I were wondering if it were just WGNA listeners voting, who would win the Presidency of the United States. So, why don't we find out with a simple anonymous poll that you can take right now.
Maybe you've moved since the last time you placed your vote? Maybe your station has changed since the last polling took place. Whatever the case might be, it's important to know where you're supposed to go to place that all mighty important vote this election day.
Did you register to vote? You had the opportunity to do it right from the comfort of well, wherever you were with your smartphone. It was a simple internet form that needed to be done by October 14th to have you all set to place your vote this November. Apparently a lot of us in New York took that few minutes because we've broken a record!
