Big Early Voting Turnout

Andrew Sullivan of The Atlantic reports that early voting turnout is huge across the country including this e-mail from a reader in Houston.

I voted today. The line was almost out the door but folks were waiting in line patiently and everyone seemed to be in a very good mood. The poll workers that I spoke with said that they had worked many previous elections and had never seen a turnout like this. They said it was packed from the moment it opened. It was pretty amazing.

I voted in Houston yesterday also and had the exact same experience: waited in line for over an hour with a well-mannered ethnic mix. There was a discernible buzz in the air.
