Eighteen-year-old Hannah Zimmerman said she feels today's presidential election is historic. Not only is a high voter turnout expected, but it's the first race to see a black candidate for president in a major political party. It's only the second election in which a female candidate has run for vice president.

Although there is speculation that Sen. Barack Obama's candidacy - given his appeal to young and minority voters - could bring an unusually large number of first-time voters to the polls this year, the proportion of registered voters nationwide who say they will be voting for the first time is no higher than it was in 2004, according to last week's pre-election poll of 2,700 registered voters.
