Carver Braces for Big Turnout 

At Carver Elementary School on Leigh Street in Richmond's 2nd City Council District, poll workers braced for unprecedented turnout, and with good reason.
Only about a thousand voters were registered in that precinct before this election cycle began. Now 3,500 people are. The crowd outside the building at 6 a.m. had somewhat dwindled to fill only about half the school's auditorium by 12:15.
The faces were mostly young, white and appeared to be Virginia Commonwealth University students. As of 12:15, more than 700 people had voted in the precinct. -- Chris Dovi
