    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Still more evidence 

    Someone we know voted this morning in Old City Philadelphia, where the line at the polls was FOUR BLOCKS LONG!

    Another person was number 200 of 900 registered voters at her Philly polling place - at 9 a.m. Two volunteers from moveon.org - one from New York State, the other from Washington State - stopped by to ask if voters needed help and to make sure the voting machines were OK.

    A colleague who, in off-years, is usually one of the first to vote at 7:20 a.m., had to leave the polls without voting at 6:55 a.m.; the lines were too long and he had to get his son to school.

    Another saw several people leave when they saw the long lines. At 8 a.m., he was number 400 in his suburban New Jersey polling place.

    Yet another, in bucolic Bucks County, Pa., Philadelphia suburbs, found 300 people divided among two lines when she showed up at 8 a.m.

    Heard on local Philly TV news: some polling lines are already TWO HOURS LONG!

    We haven't seen this much voting excitement since American Idol.
