'Astronomical' Turnout Along the Main Line

Voting records seem sure to fall today in the critical Philadelphia suburbs. Already, 136 voters have cast their ballots at the Ardmore United Methodist Church. Judge of elections Kristina Shore said the typical primary draws less than 200 voters in a FULL DAY.

She called the turnout “astronomical.” 

Voters appeared to be splitting their support evenly between Sens. Clinton and Obama. That makes sense. Ardmore is a mix of working class voters who tend to vote Clinton and the higher-income types who generally lean Obama. The town also has one of the larger African American populations on the Main Line.
