A number of metro Atlanta counties have extended voting hours Tuesday night following a tumultuous start to the day's voting.

At least one county extended voting at all precincts. Others only extended hours at a few affected locations.

Those in line before the listed closure times will be permitted to vote.

Please return for updates.

In Cobb County, officials are keeping 19 precincts open until 8 p.m. "after various issues caused those precincts to delay opening at 7 a.m. this morning."

The precincts include: Addison 01; Austell 1A; Bells Ferry 04 ; Clarkdale 01; Cooper 01; Eastside 02; Elizabeth 01; Elizabeth 03; Mableton 01; Oregon 04; Oregon 05; Palmer 01; Powder Springs 1A; Powder Springs 2A; Powder Springs 3A; Riverside 01; Sewell Mill 03; Sope Creek 02; and Sweetwater 02.

In DeKalb County, officials originally extended voting hours for various durations at seven different precincts.

But around 8:30 p.m. they announced that all precincts that had remained open past 7 p.m. -- whether due to voters still in line or other reasons -- would stay open until 9:30 p.m.

No list of affected precincts was immediately available.

Ray of Hope Christian Church near Decatur will remain open until 10:10 p.m., as previously reported.

In Fulton County, all voting precincts are now open until 9 p.m.

In Gwinnett County, just two locations were initially set to be open late after failing to open on time. Legal action forced another 15 that were impacted by late-arriving voting machines to stay open late.

County officials originally announced Beaver Ruin Baptist Church will stay open until 7:14 p.m. and Kanoheda Elementary School will stay open until 7:20 p.m.

After a voting rights group has asked a judge to reconsider, 15 more precincts were ordered open until 7:30 p.m.

They include:

  • 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

In Henry County, officials extended voting at two locations due to "this morning's technical delays."

The precinct at Henry Baptist Church was opened until 7:08 p.m. The precinct at Tabernacle of Praise Church was opened until 7:30 p.m.
