My wife and I got there a few minutes after 6AM, and walked out the door at 7A. There was a line down the block when we walked out, but everybody was orderly, and the workers were organized. I expect it's going to be a steady, heavy stream of people all day. Lots of politically active people in Arlington, and whatever party/candidate you're for, it's great to get out there and flex your political muscle!
