Early voting continues to draw long lines in Palm Beach County.

At some polling places, it's not unusual for voters to wait an hour or more to cast their ballots.

The Haden Ranch Road Library is the busiest, averaging around 1,800 to 1,900 voters a day. The Lantana Branch Library, Wellington Library, Jupiter Community Center, Boca Raton City Library and Supervisor of Elections Office are also getting a lot of traffic, with 1,300 to 1,400 voters a day.

Other polling places, however, are drastically quieter.

"In and out like an express lane, it couldn't have been better," said voter Brit Elmore of the West Palm Beach Police Department Community room.

It, along with the Palm Beach County Fairgrounds and the Wells Recreation and Community Center only average about 500 to 600 voters a day. In the Glades, only about 300-350 people are showing up daily to the Belle Glade Branch Library.

The busiest times at the polls tend to be before and after school land work and during the lunch hour.
