Mid-day report, Penn. primary/2x normal turnout by 12:30

I'm a judge of elections in Allegheny County (Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania, taking my 1/2 hour break to check in on line.

Our polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. As of 12:30 p.m., (5.5 hours) our voter turnout was more than double the entire, 13 hour day's turnout for our last primary and that goes for both Dems and Reps. Have noticed a significant increase in Democratic, white male voters over previous elections. At this rate, we'll exceed the turnout for the last two general presidential elections.

Are they motivated to turn out to vote for Hillary? Not according to the polls as to which candidate is the favorite of white males.

Lo-o-o-o-o-ng day!
