Roswell, New Mexico (CNN) – As Election Day gets closer, many voters across the country are asking, “Who are you voting for?” But in Roswell, New Mexico, the question on most people’s minds is, “Do you believe?”
Roswell has become the epicenter of believers in extraterrestrial life after a mysterious object crashed just outside the town in July 1947. Many people are convinced it was an alien spaceship.
Extraterrestrials aside, politics is still a topic that brings people back to earth in Roswell. Like Mark Briscoe, the library director at the International UFO Museum. He believes in life on other planets. Briscoe is also a registered Republican. But, he will be voting for President Obama he says, because no matter what political party a president hails from, Briscoe says presidents need eight years to get anything significant done.
