For Kriss Goss-Marr, election day could not have come soon enough.

"This campaign caused a lot of turmoil and way too much division," said Goss-Marr after casting her ballot for Hillary Clinton at a recreational center in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles on Tuesday. "I just hope, finally, we can unite and just move on."

Goss-Marr, 31, who is a director at a local nonprofit, is a lifelong Democrat.

"I could never vote for him," she said of Republican nominee Donald Trump. "He caused this division."

As Goss-Marr pulled out of the recreation center driveway, Maria Fuentes, 27, stepped out of her car ready to vote. 

"What can I say? Both are not ideal," Fuentes said with a grin. "But for me, it's going to be Hillary. We'll see what she can do, but it is the lesser of two evils." 

While Fuentes expressed reservations about Clinton "basically being in politics her whole life," she was excited to cast a ballot for the first woman to serve as a major party nominee. 

"It really is historic," she said.
