Montgomery Co. extends voting until 9 p.m. at two polling locations

By: - November 2, 2021 3:50 pm

An equipment delivery error caused two polling locations, hosting four precincts, in Montgomery County to open late on Tuesday. 

To accommodate the delay, the county Board of Elections announced that voters who cast their ballots at Gotwals Elementary School and Cole Manor Elementary School will have until 9 p.m. to vote in the Nov. 2 general election.

Once the mistake was discovered, the equipment was moved to the correct location, Kelly Cofrancisco, a spokesperson for Montgomery County, said in a statement.

Voters with questions are instructed to call Montgomery County Voter Services at 610-278-3280.

All other precincts in Montgomery County will close at 8 p.m.
