Word is that the turn out in New Hampshire is ‘absolutely huge’ today and there seems to be a run on Democratic ballots:
“Turnout is absolutely huge and towns are starting to get concerned that they may not have enough ballots,” Scanlan said. “We are working on those issues. Everything else seems to be going smoothly.”
Scanlan said that the Secretary of State’s office is sending additional ballots to Portsmouth and Keene (traditionally Democratic strongholds), Hudson (Republican leaning with significant numbers of independents) and Pelham (large number of independents).
According to Scanlan, the ballot strain seems to be on Democratic ballots, which suggests that the undeclared voters are breaking for the Democratic primary. New Hampshire Secretary of State William Gardner predicted that 90,000 undeclared voters would vote in the Democratic primary compared to 60,000 voting in the Republican primary.
We hope this is a sign of things to come all across the country and the same enthusiasm exists when we get to the general election come November. The N.Y. Times has more here. Americans are waking up and smelling the coffee. Change is gonna come.
