I’m watching MSNBC now and have heard already a couple of times that there are precincts that are requesting extra Democratic ballots from the Secretary of State as turnout is exceeding predictions. I do not know if this suggests that turnout could top Gardner’s projections or not, but it’s certainly not a bad sign for the vitality of the Democratic Party for precincts to be needing more and more ballots to meet a growing demand by voters hoping to vote in the Democratic primary today.

Also, it looks like the requests for Democratic ballots are coming from Republican and Independent heavy counties.
