COLUMBIA, S.C. —
A judge ordered four precincts to remain open until 8 p.m. because of glitches with the electronic voting machines this morning.
Hazel Taylor with the Lancaster County Election Commission says the Democratic Party sued and asked for an injunction to keep polls open.
It's unclear why Judge Brooks Goldsmith chose just four precincts.
Democratic Party spokesman Patrick Norton says voters complained through a toll-free hot line that machines were inoperative for about an hour and a half when poll opened.
Minor problems were reported across the state.
The State Election Commission had problems with its Web site, which was shut down for about 90 minutes this morning.
Because of the extended poll hours, Eyewitness News will not show South Carolina statewide results until after 8 p.m., when all the polls are closed.
North Carolina statewide results will continue to air.
