Northern Virginia voters braved long lines and brisk temperatures as they waited to cast their votes this morning.

At the Rosslyn Fire Station, roughly 30 people waited outside to cast their ballots at about 9 a.m., and roughly 300 people had voted by noon.

Precinct chief Aaron Webb said voters had been patient despite the long lines. He also said the electronic voting machines used at the precinct had been running smoothly so far.

“There is nothing more American than to vote near a red, big fire truck,” Mr. Webb said.

At the nearby Wilson School, about 50 people waited in line to cast their votes. The crowd appeared to be dominated by supporters of Sen. Barack Obama, but voter Beth Windisch said she would be marking her ballot for Sen. Hillary Clinton.

“She’s right on many issues,” she said.
