In one week, millions of voters will head to the polls for the 2010 general election.

Tuesday, dozens filled-in their ballots early in Wichita, speaking out about candidates and issues important to them.

"Currently, the job situation is really bad in Wichita, especially the aircraft industry. I'm one of the aircraft industry engineers, so I think it's very important to keep the jobs in Kansas and for companies to stay in Kansas and to do business here," said Gopal Sudarsan, Wichita.

When it comes to the power in Washington, and whether democrats or republicans should lead the charge, voters said a balance is the best.

"I don't believe it's a party decision. I don't think that one party is the reason the problem is. It's just individual opinions all going together. People are trying to run a country so many different ways, all at the same time, that I don't think it can work," said Benjahmin Alexander, Wichita.

"I do think that with a good republican majority, even though I didn't vote for most of them, but I do think it's a good thing to have balance in Washington," said Sudarsan.

Whether you agree or disagree, casting your vote is important.

"If you don't go and vote, other people are going to, and they may not feel the same way you do," said Patty Redden, Supervising Judge.
