Early bird gets the signs up

Posted by David Postman

I will be posting reports from caucus sites around the area today. The Times has reporters at Democratic and Republican caucuses and we will also be getting reports from the UW bloggers at

Times reporter Jack Broom is at Seattle Central Community College and sent this:

More than three hours before the caucuses, volunteer Chris Maryatt arrived to put up Hillary Clinton signs outside Seattle Center Community College where Barack Obama signs already in place. Nineteen precincts are scheduled to meet at the college, but it's not clear the space will hold them.

"We expect up to 2,000 people, and we won't necessary have room for everyone who shows up," said Maryatt, the Democratic 43rd Legislative District treasurer. He said once they sign in, some precincts may move to coffee shops or other locations in the neighborhood.

"This is going to be a zoo -- times 90," said one early arriving volunteer, seeing that a single large classroom was intended to hold eight different precinct caucuses.
