  • 11:59 a.m. Mention: 11:30ish -- Seventh Day Adventist at Gov’t Way/Locust (51/53) was packed. People waiting for a spot to sit down to vote at. I think I was in the 70’s for precinct 53.
  • 11:53 a.m. Herb Huseland calls to say that he hasn't seen a turnout this big in his precinct since he moved to Bayview 17 years ago. He said voters were lined up "wall to wall."
  • 11:22 a.m. PrivateIdaho: Went to the Hauser fire house at 7:15, first time I have seen more than two or three people in line - there were at least 20 people waiting.
  • 11:13 a.m. OrangeTV: Buzzing buzzing buzzing at Trinity Lutheran (Precincts 54/55) -- fully packed, with a palpable excitement in the air. I had to wait five minutes after checking in to vote since there were no voting booths free when I walked in.
  • 11:08 a.m. Alison McArthur reports 202 people have voted so far at her Post Falls Senior Center.

  • 9:49 a.m. Greg Lee: I was just at Woodland and the voters are turning out in drives there. The gals said it's been busy since they opened. They anticipate steady flow all day.
