RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) - All polling places in North Carolina have closed for today’s mid-term election.

The State Board of Elections extended hours for four precincts because of problems that arose today.

The River Bend precinct in Craven County ran out of ballots this afternoon, and an estimated 15 voters were turned away. More ballots were brought in and voting resumed after 25 minutes.

The state board said that precinct would remain open until 7:55 p.m.

Voting hours were also extended until 8:30 p.m. at locations in Wilson, Columbus, and Robeson counties.

Two of the precincts had trouble getting printers to function when opening at 6:30 a.m., while the third was locked out and didn’t have the correct code to get inside the building.

The precinct in Wilson County is at the Saratoga Volunteer Fire Department on Church Street.

State election officials say with 2,650 polling sites, it is common for minor issues to happen.

All other polling places closed at 7:30 p.m.

Elections results can be found on our website.
