Had a 90 minute wait last night at Githens Middle School, one of four centers open for early voting. It ends today, with polls open from 9-1 and I know there will be people queued up way before 9. The system was overwhelmed by the turnout; I arrived at 6; the doors were to close at 7, but they pulled every last person that was outside into the school before locking the doors so all could vote. When I left, around 7:30, there were many, many people packed in the building patiently (and cheerfully) waiting.

Oh, and there was no one out representing the GOP passing out voter guides. All Dems. The crowd was demographically middle-class, all races. I would have been shocked if there were any significant number of BC04 voters in this group. Everyone was energized about change.

Also, see the diary NC early voting stats 3 urban counties. Dems are out in full force.
