Voting in the North End

My precinct's polling place had 2 hour lines out the front door this morning. This afternoon and evening the lines were inside and visible, but they snaked around the church foyer. I just got off the phone with S-townWife, who has been waiting in line for about 30 minutes and is almost to her place at one of the four voting booths.

Looks like a big turn-out here and as far as I can tell there have been no irregularities; unless by "no irregularities" you mean anything other than the fact that once voters press the "VOTE" button and walk away from their computer screens, there is no way of confirming whether their votes will register as they intended, since there is no paper trail and there are no iron-clad assurances that the system cannot be hacked.
