EDINA, Minn. (AP) — After a heated campaign season, several Minnesota voters say they are ready for Election Day to arrive.

Outside a Starbucks in Edina, retired Hennepin County sheriff’s detective Charlie Kelly said Monday he’s “sick of reading lawn signs.”

Kelly says he’s known for months he would support Republican Mitt Romney for president. But on Minnesota’s two most hard-fought statewide races — the proposed constitutional amendments to prohibit gay marriage and require a photo ID to vote — Kelly says he just made up his mind Sunday. He plans to vote no on both.

Annalee Habstritt, a Minneapolis stay-at-home mom who describes herself as “a good liberal,” says she’d vote for President Barack Obama, and against both amendments.

Habstritt finds the flood of campaign commercials on TV this year distressing.
