We vote at a United Methodist Church and never ever have a line, except for in 2008, when there was a line of about 10 people. This year, they moved the actual polling place to a larger space in the church and the line was about 30 minutes at 7:30 AM, half an hour after the polling place opened. They were asking for IDs but there were also signs posted explaining that while we would be asked for IDs, they were not required. By 8, when we left, the line was growing. So I'm guessing turnout here will be heavy.
