Fifteen Gwinnett County polling locations will stay open until 7:30 p.m.

They are:

Duluth City Hall; the Gwinnett School of Math, Science & Technology; New Mercies Christian Church; Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church; Lanier High School; Mountain Park United Methodist Church; Dacula Activity Building; Sycamore Elementary School; Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources; Grace Baptist Church; Central Baptist Church; Hebron Dacula; Mason Elementary; Bunten Road precincts; and Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church.

That's in addition to Beaver Ruin Baptist Church, which will close at 7:14 p.m., and Kanoheda Elementary, which will close at 7:20 p.m.

John Powers, an attorney for the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said the group had sought a longer extension "but this is what Judge (George) Hutchinson granted."

The group said in a demand letter than a number of locations opened today without all of their polling equipment.

Joe Sorenson, a Gwinnett County spokesperson, said earlier that 16 locations did not have all their election equipment by the time the polls were due to open, but voters were able to use emergency ballots.
