Got up about an hour earlier than I did yesterday, scraped the frost from the car, and guided it to our polling location. Evaded all the folks who wanted to give me last-minute suggestions, and got in line. Yes -- LINE -- for a non-presidential election. Usually on the off-times, there is no wait at all, but the line went out the door and past the stairs. The workers said it had been like that since they opened. I got there about 7:35 -- up to the desk by about 7:45 -- and I was number 61. Wow.

I voted a bit before 10:30 local time. No line, but there were people already voting, and apparently there was an early surge. If I understood what one of the poll workers said to another, they'd already had a twenty percent turnout.

In my part of my split precinct, I was voter 184, held ballot 188, and registered as voter 181 on the tally machine--there were some people in need of getting a fresh ballot, the tally machine does find invalid votes. This was near 11am, got through within 15 minutes. Biggest wait was for next voting podium. Two years ago, I think was there at the same time of day, but there was a much longer line at that time, thankfully most of it was on the other side of the split precinct.

Out precinct workers were very pleased at our larger-than-usual turnout, too.

We issued 1023 ballots in our precinct and cast 1016 (7 spoiled/reissued).
