If early morning lines at polling stations are any indication, today’s voting turnout is looking as high as expected in Arlington.
In Fairlington this morning, about 30 voters were lined up a half hour before polls opened. By the time those voters cast their ballots, the line was a hundred-plus people long.
The same story played out elsewhere in the county, from north to south. The lines have since thinned out, but are expected to get longer again during the lunch and after-work rushes.
Here are some reports from the polls around Arlington this morning, via Twitter:

Took 40 minutes to vote at my polling place in Arlington. Was told the line was much longer an hour before I got in line.

The weather's warming up and lines are dying down. Perfect formula for #ElectionDay Now if only voters would stop walking off with our pens.
