The Pre-Election Day Polling Place is experiencing 600 voters per day.

There were younger voters, older voters, minority voters and they were all very patient in waiting in line. 

There were voters newly registering from moving into town from other places and they are taking the time to do it right.

People aren't putting up with misspelling or incorrect addresses either.  If there are errors they are being vigilant. 

It was a very atypical turn out.  I have voted early before.  Normally I walk in and cast my ballot and leave with one or two people ahead of me.  That was not at all the case today.  There was a line down the hall and nearly to the lobby.  I waited for about 25 minutes until I got to the ballot machine.

It is happening !
