Extra hours for early voting

October 31, 2008|Times Wire Reports

Polling places in the state may stay open an extra four hours on Saturday to accommodate early voters, the state Board of Elections has decided.

The board voted unanimously to order all 100 counties to keep their early voting sites open until 5 p.m. instead of 1 p.m. unless local officials decide it's unnecessary.

More than 1.7 million people -- 30% of registered voters -- had cast a ballot through Wednesday night.
