The local news stated that 1195 people voted yesterday when we did–just 400 voted on the first day in the last Presidential primary and 70,000 are expected in total. There was also mention that many of the voters were first time voters or people who are not regular voters. br /br /I happened to catch the local news at WATE this afternoon and noticed that they caught pictures of both Glenn and me voting. a href=”http://www.wate.com/Global/category.asp?C=369nav=menu7_1″Watch the video/a and see if you can catch us (it’s very brief). You will have to scroll down and click on the camera icon next to “early voting” under “6 News video” in the middle of the page. Hint–I have on the brown jacket that you see to the left and you can hopefully recognize Glenn. br /br /Has anyone else done early voting in their town? How is the turnout?
