DOVER, N.H. (AP) — Polls are staying open for an extra hour in Dover because the city mistakenly sent an email to voters with the wrong closing time.
Voting was supposed to end at 7 p.m., but the New Hampshire Democratic Party sought a court order requiring polls to remain open until 8 p.m. after the incorrect time was given to voters.
Democratic Party chairman Ray Buckley says they wanted to ensure that all voters were able to exercise their right to vote. He says he’s glad a judge granted the motion over an objection filed by the state Republican Party.
