CHICAGO (CBS) — Election Day has seen long lines and a few glitches at the polls throughout the Chicago area, reports WBBM’s Terry Keshner.
In McHenry County, some voters were turned away because of problems with electronic poll books. Leslie Cook was one of them.
“I stayed for about an hour and there were probably 20 to 30 people turned away in that time and I get frustrated and I left,” Cook said.
The problem was fixed and she was eventually able to vote. Because of problems, voting hours have been extended until 8:30 p.m. in McHenry County.
