(Before It's News)

Durham County in North Carolina has been granted an extension in their voting hours after a glitch was reported in their electronic check-in systems. We reported on this earlier today, and the state approving the extension could play a factor in the turnout of the race.

As we reported, North Carolina is a hotly contested state and has two key races being looked at: the presidential election AND the re-election bid of Governor Pat McCrory. According to CNN:

By state rules, all voting locations in the county have to be affected for an extension of voting hours. The county has brought in 60 additional staff to work on providing more data to the state on how much the voting has been affected, Khan said.

At least five precincts in North Carolina had to switch to paper poll books earlier in the day. The move came “out of an abundance of caution,” according to Patrick Gannon, spokesman for the North Carolina State Board of Elections.
