GA polling site evacuated due to electrical fire

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Officials say a polling station in suburban Atlanta was evacuated after a small electrical fire.
    
The DeKalb County Board of Registration said in a news release that All Saints Catholic in Dunwoody will remain open an additional 30 minutes after the fire occurred early Tuesday. The precinct was originally supposed to close at 7 p.m.
    
Officials say firefighters responded to the fire around 11:50 a.m. at the church, which temporarily suspended voting and forced voters to evacuate.
    
Voting was interrupted between 11:40 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.
    
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports there were technical glitches in Gwinnett County along with delays in openings at two polling sites.
