KS: Voting Has a Rock Show Vibe

By Carol D. Leonnig
In Kansas City at 68th and Holmes Streets, the Kansas City Star reports, the mood was high and voters were marveling at their own turnout.

One person in line remarked, "Who would have thought that Election Day would be like going to a rock concert? Yeah, we had to stand in line a long time, but it was worth the wait."

There were many people with cellphone cameras, taking pictures of each other. There were several people with other cameras, too. Election workers came by periodically with large tubs of assorted candy, to keep everyone's strength up.
