I've been volunteering lately for the Obama campaign and, briefly, for No On 8.  But today there's not much for shy people to do, and I voted yesterday at the registrar's office, so today I've kind of got the day off.  I dropped by a few of my neighborhood polling places.

At the library they said there were 50 people waiting in line at 7:00, and since then there's been no more than 5 people at a time.  (I don't remember if that was "5 in line" or "5 voters on the premises".)  At the unidentified church, um, they were just kind of confused by my presence.  And at my polling place, a guy told me he's been doing this for years and this is the highest turnout he's seen:  200 ballots mailed in, some 300 so far on site, and the lunch rush still ahead.

Everybody seemed to be having a good day.  I'm having a good day.

If it's like our place, there were generally more than 5 people (in addition to the dozen judges) there at any given time, but after the morning rush, not more than 5 people in line (except for new registrations - yay for same day registration!).
