Westside and Varnell precinct voters in Whitfield County will have an extra 30 minutes to cast their ballots at today’s primary.

There were a few slight irregularities which caused electronic ballots for the Varnell and Westside precincts to function improperly.

Those problems were corrected within 30 minutes and voters during that time were given paper ballots to use until the problem was corrected.

Voter Registrar Mary Hammontree said that no votes were lost, but in an abundance of caution, and by Superior Court Order in accordance with Georgia State law the voting hours at those two precincts are extended by 30 minutes.  

No other precincts were affected.
