Update: I just got an e-mail from Bill Luckett, communications director for the Wyoming Democrats.

Actually, the caucuses are running much more smoothly today than we had feared. We learned some tricks from other states that ran into problems with being way overwhelmed with turnout. We are sitting around 13.4 percent turnout so far today, which has been unheard of in past years. In 2004, we had a statewide total of 675 people vote in our caucuses. We have already seen more than 10 times that so far today. From looking at the very few records we have of previous caucuses, and talking to former state party chairs, we don't have any evidence that we have ever reached even a 3 percent turnout at a Wyoming Democratic presidential caucus, so we are just ecstatic at the amount of enthusiasm our party has this year. As for the overwhelming crowds ... it's an historic day for the Wyoming Democratic Party when our biggest problem is that too many people want to be involved!

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.
