Lily-white flyover states.

Barack Obama is sweeping the Democratic caucuses in states like Alaska, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, and North Dakota, but losing primaries in states that vote by secret ballot.

I feel an analysis of the Bradley Effect and aversive racism in the voting booth coming on.

Alameda County polls ordered to remain open until 10 p.m.

(02-05) 21:08 PST Los Angeles (AP) --

A judge has ordered polls in Alameda County to remain open as late as 10 p.m. Tuesday in precincts that ran out of Democratic ballots.

County registrar's spokesman Guy Ashley says fourteen polling stations in Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and Fremont ran out of ballots. Precincts will stay open as long as voters are waiting in line up to 10 p.m.

"To run into this situation indicates that turnout was huge," Ashley said.

The San Francisco Bay area county is home to more than 704,000 registered voters.

It's one of several counties reporting a surge in independent voters requesting party ballots.

In Santa Clara County, people who hadn't voted were told to bring their sample ballots to polling places to use as provisional ballots.
