Voting updates - prepare for a wait

Good morning! As voting gets going around the state, here are some early updates from Portland and South Portland.

But first, here's how to be prepared in case you run into any problems voting.

South Portland - the Community Center parking lot was completely jammed at 8 am, with traffic just starting to back up in the streets nearby.

Portland - At Grace Baptist Church at 7:15, the line was 200 yards long. At Reiche School at about the same time, the wait to vote was 45 minutes long.

Not sure where to vote in Portland? Click here and enter your address - it'll tell you your district and your polling place.

Also, the guy who owns Leonardo's Pizza will apparently be standing outside his business all day long in a chef's outfit, holding a sign urging people to vote.

More updates and photos later on!
