Presidential Candidate Donald Trump dropped in on early voters Monday morning at the county’s elections headquarters on Military Trail. In a manner of speaking. They saw his plane come in for a landing nearby at Palm Beach International Airport around 9:30 a.m. Kind of hard to miss the guy’s name spelled out in yuuuuge letters on the fusilage.

The first day of voting was going smoothly, with the line only about 10 deep.

“Do not go past the ‘Date of Birth’ line,” a poll worker instructed voter after voter on filling out the form for ballots. “Turn off cell phones.”

Between the time I set foot on line, checked in and voted, the whole process took 14 minutes.

The longer wait took place after exiting and driving onto Southern Boulevard, which instantly clogged with traffic, presumably to let the candidate and his security entourage through. Police and sheriff’s cruisers were visible from the airport all the way to South Dixie Highway.
