9:13 a.m. Democrat Party HDQ packed since 7:30 a.m., mainly with students trying to figure out where their polling place is. There's been a line at Boone 2 precinct since about 7:30, but it's moving steadily. Steady turnout at the other student precinct, Boone 3. Cove Creek precinct ... the parking lot's jammed ... so both Democrats and Republicans are turning out. Blowing Rock precinct's had a line since very early, but it's moving steadily.
