with a line going out the door. Many more people than last time. At 7:00, they were running out of chairs for those who wished to stay and elect delegates/ introduce resolutions.

She's caucusing for Bernie in a small town high school. Hundreds of people and cars parked everywhere. The state's website with locations was down so people were in a panic. She called me to try to find something online but I couldn't either. No one there was helping. Finally they figured it out.

She stood in life for over an hour to register and is now in the thick of it.

It's a hybrid system. You can sign in, vote and leave or you can stay to introduce resolutions and pick delegates.
