Emily Chatburn, who teaches 3rd grade at a local elementary school, puts her completed voter ballot into a drop box at a recreation center in Boulder, Colo., Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016. Regarding the divisiveness in American politics, Chatburn says: "I try to get an understanding for both sides, where they are coming from… I think that it will be very interesting to see what happens. And whatever president it is, they'll get settled, and I think, just really, I'm hoping that no matter who the president is, that our other checks and balances will make sure that either president makes the right choice for our country. I believe in the fabric of our democracy too." (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
