Outages force two North Fulton early voting places to stay open late

Two early voting locations in north Fulton County have stayed open late Friday due to Internet outages that have caused delays in checking voters into the polls.

Complaints about the resulting long lines at early voting locations sites at Roswell Library and Ocee Library in Johns Creek have been received by the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office. A spokeswoman said the office is in a fact-finding stage. No official investigation has been open, but the office will determine whether to move forward with one as soon as Monday.

As for voters, anyone in line as of 6 p.m. Friday is allowed by law to still cast their ballot.

Early voting in north Fulton is part of a special election to be held Tuesday, with the ballot including the nationally watched race to replace former U.S. Rep. Tom Price in the 6th Congressional District.
