Some good news about the state of democracy in America: As was the case in Iowa, officials in New Hampshire are reporting that turnout in today's primary is "absolutely huge." Some bad news about the state of democracy in America: Our voting systems are still so ramshackle that New Hampshire's secretary of state felt compelled to assure CNN that it's not "likely" that the state will run out of ballots.
