COBB COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) — A Cobb County Superior Court Judge has ordered eight Cobb County election precincts to remain open past the scheduled 7 p.m. closing time. The order comes after various issues caused the precincts to open late this morning for the municipal and ESPLOST election.
Elections officials say most of the delays were caused by minor technical issues that were quickly corrected. The exception was the McEachern 01 precinct that was briefly evacuated due to a fire alarm in the building.

Riverside Epicenter, 135 Riverside Parkway, Austell, GA 30168, open until 7:30 pm
