Robert Dalton already turned his ballot into the clerk's office, and there is still more than a week to go before election day. He does not think he will change his mind.

"I doubt it very seriously, of course anything is possible, but I doubt very seriously that anything that would happen in the next ten days would change my mind," Dalton said outside Lansing's election center.

Peter Hudy says even if one of the candidates dies, it would not affect his decision.

"My mind has been decided for about the past three or four months and regardless of what happens in the next 11 days, my vote is not going to change," he said.

More than 12 million people have already voted nationally, and the Lansing City Clerk says more than 6,000 people have cast their ballots in Lansing as of Friday.

Dalton says the FBI's announcement that it has re-opened the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email use will not impact his vote.

"There's more to it than just Hillary Clinton's emails, I think there's a lot of things that Mr. Trump is doing as well that might dissuade people to vote for him perhaps just as Mrs. Clinton's emails might dissuade people from voting for her," he said.

He doesn't think the latest development will change many minds.
