I decided to get an early start on voting today. I figured 6, maybe 6:15 should be enough.

There were at least 150 people ahead of me.

By the time the polls had opened, the line stretched from my point, well over the 150 foot limit for canvassing, across the front of the grade school that I vote at, and down to the road it fronts on. I couldn't *see* past that.

When I left at 7:50 this morning, the line was still back to the road, a minimum of 600 feet. I estimated around 600-1000 people.

It's these times I'm proud to be in a democratic country. No kidding aside, no cynicism, just plain pride. For once in this country, people are voting.

I hope we see more of it.
