Virginia governor’s race: early turnout strong, no significant problems at precincts

As you all already know, strong turnout (especially in NOVA) is a great sign for our team!!!

I voted in Loudoun County (Lowes Island precinct) at 8 AM and there were more voters than I had expected. I also participated in my first exit poll!

I can't wait to watch the returns. I know Mark Herring from my work with the Loudoun County Democratic Committee and am very excited at the prospect of him being our Attorney General (and more in the future?).

If you haven't already, VOTE!!!

Added to the article:

A preliminary exit poll conducted Tuesday in Virginia found that early voters were more likely to be Democrats, less white, and more highly educated than the electorate that turned out in the 2009 governor’s race.

Nearly four in 10 voters identified themselves as Democrats, while just over three in 10 said they were Republicans or independents, according to the exit poll conducted by Edison Media Research for the National Election Pool.

If the results bear out the poll findings, the numbers would represent a dramatic shift from four years ago when Republicans outnumbered Democrats by four percentage points.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
