Election Day 2014: Open Thread


Today is Election Day 2014 here in Virginia, and we all need to get out and vote for Democrats up and down the ballot. Polls are open from 6 am until 7 pm, which gives you 13 hours to exercise one of your most precious rights (and duties, IMHO) as an American – voting. Anyway, what are you seeing and hearing out there? What’s turnout like in your neck of the woods? Let Blue Virginia readers know in the comments section of this post. Thanks.

UPDATE 6:30 pm: Just “heard Long lines of after-work voters at both Wilson and Rosslyn precincts.” I’m also hearing expectations of around 70,000 voters turning out in Arlington, which wouldn’t be bad for a midterm…

UPDATE 11:26 am: @fairfaxvotes tweets, “10 a.m. turnout numbers averaging between 10 and 20% – highest is a 22%  turnout at a precinct in 10th Congressional District.”

UPDATE 7:44 am: I’m hearing “good and steady” turnout in the Democratic precincts of Henrico county; “pretty light in the 7th” congressional district.
