Long voting lines? Nope. Huge turnout? Yep.

I just stopped by a polling place on Capitol Hill. There were no long lines, though most voting booths were full. According to the precinct officer, things were going swimmingly. He also said 'ꀔ surprise! 'ꀔ that the turnout is big. Real big.

In previous years, this particular precinct typically processed about 17 voters per hour. Today, it's about 100 voters per hour. Polls close at 8 p.m.
