Voting extended in Bell County by 1 hour after polls experienced delays

Officials say that voting has been extended by one hour in Bell County after eight polling locations experienced delays this morning due to a technical glitch.

County officials say they're back online now, but each of these locations had issues with the check-in machines related to this weekend's time change.

Election staff and Technology Services employees were deployed to fix the problem.

The issue led to delays in the opening of facilities and long wait times for voters, so county officials requested an extra hour of voting from the Secretary of State.

The request was approved and all Bell County Voting Centers will remain open this evening until 8:00 p.m.
