John McCain has accepted the Republican Party's nomination for the presidential election.
Here eight Republican voters look back at the convention and forward to November's poll.
I wasn't thrilled with Sarah Palin's speech
"McCain's speech almost continuously juggled his centrist-maverick theme with conservative promises.
Lives: Renton, Washington
Occupation: Full-time mother
Last election voted:
In 10 words or fewer: I love husband, kids, home, travel, learning, problem-solving, dogs
I was sorry to hear him playing to the Republican old guard again after previous convention speeches put so much effort into reaching out to political moderates.
But I was intrigued by McCain's hints about putting money into adult education.
Joe Lieberman addressed people like me - those lifelong Democrats who have never before considered voting for a Republican.
He emphasised what makes me most likely to vote for McCain - his history of working across the party divide.
I'm still hoping that McCain will prove to be 'Republican Lite'.
I'm relieved that both Lieberman and Giuliani felt comfortable in emphasizing McCain's history of bipartisan legislation and challenging of big business.
I was also relieved to hear Giuliani speaking about the practical issues of running a government. That stands in stark contrast, not only to Obama's 'hope' and 'change', but to the Republican Party's pet phrase - 'family values'.
But I wasn't thrilled with Sarah Palin's speech. Despite her focus on reform, her speech was the first which really reminded me that I was slightly out-of-place as former Democrat among Republicans."
