1. It was packed at my location

with a line going out the door. Many more people than last time. At 7:00, they were running out of chairs for those who wished to stay and elect delegates/ introduce resolutions.

2. Huge crowd at my caucus in Red Wing...they said it was an unprecedented turn-out.

I don't have results yet....friend is calling when they finish counting.

3. My daughter reports very heavy turnout and chaos.

She's caucusing for Bernie in a small town high school. Hundreds of people and cars parked everywhere. The state's website with locations was down so people were in a panic. She called me to try to find something online but I couldn't either. No one there was helping. Finally they figured it out.

She stood in life for over an hour to register and is now in the thick of it.

4. Websites down, chaos...sounds like the planned confusion in FL in 2000.

Only then the phone access was down as well.

10. You may be confused by Minnesota's caucus system

It's a hybrid system. You can sign in, vote and leave or you can stay to introduce resolutions and pick delegates.
