Heavy Early Voting Yesterday
I finally made it to vote early yesterday over on Gambell. I got there about 1:30 pm.
I've never seen the early voting so crowded. There were about eight people in line in front of me and all the voting booths were full.
People working there said last Monday (the first day of early voting) they had about 800 or 900 and they thought yesterday was going at the same pace. That's about 100 voters per hour. This is the main early voting spot in Anchorage, so there are people from all precincts. And maybe I was there at a particularly crowded moment. But candidates are trying to get their supporters to vote absentee or early.
