USA Today reports:

"It's unbelievable," Robert Ware, a monitor with the St. Louis Board of Election Commissioners, says about turnout in his area. "The past election was a trade wind blowing. This feels like a hurricane."

Ware, 63, talked to USA TODAY's Rick Jervis. By 10 a.m. CT today, Ware had been able to pay single visits to six polling places.

There were more people lining up to vote Tuesday than in the 2000 and 2004 races combined, Ware said.
