SEATTLE (AP) - Washington State Democrats say the presidential caucuses are drawing record numbers of voters.

The party says its initial samplings from around the state indicate turnout could be more than twice as big than than 2004's caucuses, which drew100,000 people.

Some caucus sites around the state have seen big crowds, with meetings spilling out into hallways.
