A Winter Park, Fla. early voting site has been given the "all clear" following the discovery and controlled detonation of two suspicious packages on Saturday.
Mary Gail Coffee, a spokersperson for the Winter Park Public Library, told TPM that law enforcement officials now consider the matter an ongoing investigation, and that voting was resuming at the site.
"We just let voters back in the building," Coffee said.
The library had been evacuated, and early voting suspended, in the early afternoon. A voter had alerted the lead poll worker to an unattended lunch box of some kind, and the poll worker had then called the police. Law enforcement officials brought police dogs and a robot capable of taking x-rays to the scene, but were unable to determine the contents of the package, so they decided to detonate it. A second package was later found, and also detonated.
Early voting at the site was was supposed to run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day from Oct. 27 to Nov. 3. Coffee told TPM earlier on Saturday that any voter that makes it to the site by 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
