At 12:30 p.m., LAist reader Greg Leeper arrived in Norwalk to vote and found a very long line that was the whole width of the parking lot that doubled back half the building width. More than two hours later, he was in a tent waiting to be called inside to vote. Come 3:30 p.m., he was inside finally, but waiting to get called to a voting booth.

UPDATE: At 3:55 p.m., nearly three and a half hours later, he was done. Phew!
