Pa polls are closed, but some are still voting

Dan Hardy and Martha Woodall report:

Voters were still waiting in line at 9 p.m. at 12th and Susquehanna in Philadelphia and near Lincoln University in Chester County.

About 150 people waited in line in Lower Oxford Township’s east precinct, about a mile from Lincoln, which was plagued with problems all day.

Kathy Bojanowski, who works the night shift at A.I. DuPont Hospital in Delaware, gave up about 8:45 p.m.

“If I knew I could have voted in an hour or two, I would have been OK,” she said. “It’s a shame. This is wrong with the technologies we have. My daughter voted early in North Carolina. They have to do something different.”

About 100 voters went to the other precinct in Lower Oxford Township and voted by provisional ballot.

Near Temple, voters still in line at 8 p.m. were ushered inside the building, and doors were locked. Voting finished about 9:30 p.m. State law guarantees that anyone in line by 8 p.m. will be given the opportunity to vote.
