NCBOE officials said the stall Tuesday morning was from technical issues, and an emergency meeting was held about the whether the precincts would stay open late due to the later start. NCBOE voted to extend voting by one hour to make up for time lost.

The BOE is also reporting 15 instances of voter intimidation and interference at the polls. They range from people yelling at voters to harassing students walking to class at a site, to poll workers being followed in their cars. The executive director stressed the situations are not the norm.
