Voting extended in certain Indiana precincts
(CNN) -- The polls in Indiana's Delaware County will remain open an extra two hours and 40 minutes, until 8:40 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 in Muncie. The problem delayed the opening time for more than 70 precincts.

In addition, two LaPorte County precincts that were supposed to close at 7 p.m. CT have extending voting hours, according to Jen Fanger of the Indiana secretary of state's office. One will remain open an extra half hour, until 7:30 p.m., and the other will remain open for an extra hour, until 8 p.m.
