Hours Extended At One NC Precinct

The Raleigh News & Observer reports that one North Carolina precinct will keep the polls open an extra hour tonight:

Voters at the Barwell Road Community Center in Raleigh will get an extra hour to vote — until 8:30 p.m. — because of a delay in balloting this morning. An election official who was dropped off there this morning left the ballots in her grandson's truck, and she had to track him down, Poucher said. That delayed voting by just over half an hour and kept about 300 people waiting.
