20-year-old Cecil Rice is making a life-long decision.

"I'm a trans-man not a trans-woman," said Cecil Rice.

A decision she wants the next president to be fully on board with.

"I want someone that wants my interests at heart," said Rice.

Cecil is a Bernie Sanders supporter and now feels like she's stuck voting for Hillary Clinton, someone she feels doesn't fully support gay people.

"20 years ago she made some very anti-LGBT statements and she changes her mind often," said Rice.

Tuesday, Hillary Clinton made history becoming the first female to get the presidential nomination. And because of this, some Sanders supporters, like Cecil, feel like they're forced to vote for her.

Others say they want Hillary to stop Donald Trump from grabbing a win.

"In order to keep Donald Trump out of office especially if you feel he's a threat to what this country stands for you're forced to vote for a candidate that you no longer appreciate," said Elizabeth Hayes.

Some say, at the end of the night, what's done is done.

"You can't do nothing because something is going to happen regardless you might as well pick the lesser of two evils," Katie Zoladz.
