More voting statistics

Turnout by party
64.2% of registered, active Democrats in Blossburg turned out. (167 out of 260)
39..7% of registered active Republicans in Blossburg turned out. (194 out of 489)
Turnout by hour
I expected the results to be patterned very similarly to last year, but very few people showed up during the 5-6 p.m. hour, where that was our busiest hour in November. Thanks to the third machine we received, the longest line was four people and it went very quickly. There were 263 voters in Nov. 2007 and 361 yesterday, a 47 percent increase.
