FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Some voters in Fort Collins cast their caucus votes under the stars after crowds overwhelmed one gathering spot.

The Coloradoan (http://noconow.co/1RGQqwe ) reports that people spilled outside Lincoln Middle School to caucus after an estimated 1,500 people showed up there Tuesday. Some people climbed up into trees to speak on the mild night.

Firefighters showed up there on a medical call, saw the overcrowding and stopped allowing anyone else inside the building until someone else left.

Others voluntarily left another caucus location, Rocky Mountain High School, without voting because of shoulder-to-shoulder crowds.

Large crowds also overwhelmed some caucus locations in Boulder County. Hundreds of voters were turned away there.
