Technical glitches reported in voting machines in Indiana
(CNN)-- The polls in Delaware County will remain open an extra two hours and 45 minutes, until 8:45 p.m. ET, because of a computer error with electronic voting machines. The extension was approved by the 5th Circuit Court of Delaware County after local election officials filed to keep the polls open longer, according to Phil Nichols of the Delaware County Board of Elections.
The problem delayed the opening time for more than 70 precincts.
The polls in the rest of the state will close at the scheduled time, with the last polling stations shutting down at 7 p.m. ET.
In Marion County, paper ballots had to be used in more than 100 precincts because touch screens on electronic voting machines weren't working, according to election officials.
