By 6:15 the line was long, and that was just to sign in. Sticking to the rules, no one could vote until 6:30, and we only had the choices for president. The slate of Democrats was long and included people who dropped out a long time ago (in political terms). ( I guess the Republicans were in another place.) They were unprepared; I gave them two of my pens (from the bus company). People were still arriving at 7:00 when they declared the actual caucus to be in the next building. At first, the Convener said they wouldn't start until 8 (when the whole thing was supposed to be over), but she started the process of electing caucus officials about 7:15. Still, people were trickling in and it was obvious the main event would go on for a long time. I didn't stick around.

I talked to several interesting local voters, including an Imam from Somalia and a student originally from Bangladesh who lives in my building.
