1. Expected soon

Many locations had to switch to paper ballots due to unprecedented turnout. Supposed to close in 8 minutes, but who knows how long it will take for eveyone in line to vote.

4. Some caucuses didn't open until 4 pm.

But geez it's 4 hours after that! Bet Democratic Mainers(?) are disgusted by the lack of interest in their votes.

Nope, some caucus locations opened as early as 1pm and looking at the list at the link below, some open as late as 6pm. As others have mentioned, there is a big turnout, which will probably slow results down.
