Lee County--Most people used standard methods of transportation, like a car, to get to the polls yesterday.

One Lee County couple took the kind of ride that goes "clippity-clop".

These voters took a horse and buggy to the Redbone precinct to cast their ballots. They say they wanted to go the "old-fashioned Lee County way" to the polls.

Rider Tara Okon says, "We figured we'd come to the polls in the Lee County fashion, the old-fashioned way, we need to take the horses out for exercise right down from polls."

They say they didn't get a whole lot of stares, just a lot of waves.
