There are long lines at Seattle's Union Station—one of King County's handful of polling places—with lots of people waiting to vote. It's a very good sign for Patty Murray. So much for the demoralized Democratic base. So much for the enthusiasm gap. Says KOMO...

A surge of last-minute voters has overwhelmed the three locations where King County residents can still cast ballots in person. The county's Accessible Voting Centers in Tukwila, Bellevue and Seattle were reporting record numbers of voters and waits of up to three hours to cast a ballot. At the voting center at Bellevue City Hall lines stretched through the hall and outside, and at Union Station in Seattle some voters gave up after seeing how long the wait was.

Okay, so some folks are demoralized. Anyone want to run some cupcakes or tequila shots down there to raise their spirits?
