Breaking News in King's County, Washington from our partners at Washington Community Action Network:

News From the King County Elections office is that the feature on their website that allows voters to look up their polling place by entering their address is down. In the first hours after the polls opened at 7am the page received unprecedented traffic and subsequently crashed.

According to workers at the county elections hotline (206-296-VOTE), the phone's been ringing off the hook. They will be answering any and all questions, and even texting polling locations for concerned voters all day.

We just got an update from Tim at Washington Community Action. After three hours, the website went back up. No doubt so that record numbers of voters can keep overwhelming it... :)
