The turnout was huge on election day

The turnout on election day was big. Really, really big.

I worked at precinct G141 where just over 600 voters were registered. By 10:30 a.m. we had already distributed 280 ballots. By 10:30 IN THE MORNING! If you counted both G141 and G150 we had about 1,500 registered voters.

Voting was steady all day long. Voters kept coming, and coming, and coming. The one (very odd) thing though, no one was in line at 6 p.m. when the polls closed. At the end of the day our AccuVote machine said it had counted 999 ballots. We had planned to do a special dance at 1,000, so we danced anyway.
