Two Gwinnett voting precincts open late, county asking to extend hours

Two Gwinnett County voting precincts opened 15 minutes late Tuesday morning, a county spokesman said.

The county will ask a judge to allow the Pinckeyville Community Center and Knight Elementary School precincts to stay open until 7:15 p.m. Tuesday evening in order to allow a full 12 hours for residents to cast ballots in the runoff election, spokesman Joe Sorenson said. Pinckneyville Community Center is located in Berkeley Lake and serves some voters in Norcross and Peachtree Corners. Knight Elementary School is in Lilburn.

At the Lenora Park polling place in Snellville, one express poll machine went down, making only one voting machine available for a short period of time Tuesday morning. A 20-minute line formed while the broken machine was being replaced, Sorenson said. The county is not asking for more time at the Lenora Park polling place.

Voters can cast ballots until 7 p.m. Tuesday for races including Georgia secretary of state. You can find your polling place with Gwinnett County's locator tool.
