A Georgia judge ordered Gwinnett County officials to extend voting today, AJC reports, after voters faced serious problems this morning at some polling places.

Gwinnett County Superior Court Chief Judge Melodie Snell Conner ordered the county to keep three separate voting precincts open – all of which had technical problems this morning forcing people to wait for hours.

Polls in Georgia are set to close at 7 p.m. ET Conner extended the hours of one precinct to 9:25 p.m. ET, another until 7:30 ET, and another to 7:14 ET.
