The voting line in Highland is already big -- and growing by the minute

Okay, the Highland line isn't quite this long -- but it's getting there.

I'm waiting to vote at the United Way on the edge of Highland. People started arriving at 6 a.m., there were thirty in line by a quarter of seven, and another thirty showed up in the last ten minutes. Hope you brought something to read -- like maybe an election blue book. -- Patricia Calhoun
