Hugs and cheers as Virginia casts first votes

Democrats encouraged by high early turnout in key swing state for Obama

The line began forming soon after 4am, when there was more noise from crickets than passing traffic and the suburban cul-de-sacs were bathed in darkness, as Virginians cast the first votes in today’s elections.

Polls in Virginia, a prime target of Barack Obama today, opened at 6am — ahead of much of the rest of the country.

The early morning hours saw heavy turnout – a sign of the intensity of the contest between Obama and John McCain. The heavy turnout was also an encouraging sign for Democrats.
