OCEAN CITY, Md.- Republican and Democratic voters headed to the polls in Ocean City at the convention center on Tuesday morning to cast their presidential primary ballots in the midst of a memorable campaign.

Virginia Neubuaer voted for Donald Trump.

"Because he's a business man, and because we have a mess, a big mess," she said. "Whether you like what he said or not at least he says what he thinks and that's kind of a nice change, no lies, that's nice."

Bert Meyer voted for Ted Cruz.

"It's a vote against Trump," he explained. "I like Kasich better but he's not going to win so I chose Cruz."

Del. Mary Beth Carozza of District 38C did vote for John Kasich however.

"He took a state and just turned it completely around, creating jobs,  giving tax cuts back to the people," she said. "So if he's done this for a great state like Ohio and turned it around I know that he can do great things for America."

On the Democratic side, Dawn Lacey Merriman voted for Bernie Sanders.

"Because I'm passionate about his beliefs and his philosophies and I voted along those same lines," she explained.

And Charlotte, who preferred not to give her last name, voted for Hillary Clinton.

"I thinks she's the best candidate," she said. "I hope Trump doesn't make it, I think he's got a little too much going for him against women and other people and the minorities so she's my choice,"

Recent polls have indicated that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are ahead in all five states' primaries, however some voters say "it ain't over 'til it's over."

"I think if everyone went out and cast their vote they have a reason to argue or debate who they want and what should be done," Charlotte said. "But if you stay home and don't vote I don't think you should have any voice."
