And the nuns were turned away

The Associated Press: Indiana's primary turnout high, despite photo ID law: "Polling locations reported voter totals that far exceeded previous primaries. More than 80,000 people voted in Fort Wayne's Allen County and nearly 22,000 people voted in southern Indiana's Floyd County — both double the 1992 turnout."

When I voted at 7:15 a.m., there was a very short line to check in, and no waiting for the machines. I was done in five minutes. I don't know if this was because turnout was light in my precinct, or because I was there fairly early, or what.

I could easily identify myself, but too bad about these potential voters:

"About 12 elderly Roman Catholic nuns were turned away Tuesday from a polling place because they didn't have state or federal identification bearing a photograph."

The nun story was on the front page of msnbc.com last night.
