This is going to be big …

I stopped by the county offices here in Montana to register my car. SpongeBob Squarepants was wandering down the sidewalk. More amazingly, there was a line of early voters stretching out the door of the Clerk’s office, down the hall, and up the stairs to the second floor. The motor vehicle registrar told me that 20,000 people have registered to vote in the last few weeks. That’s 1/4 of the population. It looks like turnout is going to be huge.

I hope the system can keep up. It seems reasonable to think that many jurisdictions have become habituated to low turnout, and simply don’t have the capacity to handle everyone exercising their rights.

Vote early, vote often.
