While the polls across Eastern Carolina may be closing at 7:30 p.m., a shortage of ballots in one Forsyth County precinct is delaying the release of results across the state.

The state Board of Elections extended voting at the Miller Park Recreation precinct in Winston-Salem until 8:10 p.m.

A problem at a Bertie County precinct is keeping that voting location open until 8:00 p.m. The Snakebite precinct in Windsor had a problem with a printer that was used for voter check-in.

The state says it will start releasing results once all precincts in the state are closed.

The polls will remain open until 7:30 p.m. in North Carolina for Super Tuesday.

Voters in 14 states are heading to the polls to cast their ballots, with more than 1,300 delegates at stake.

About a third of the delegates needed to secure the Democratic presidential nomination are up for grabs. So far, Senator Bernie Sanders has won big in Nevada's caucuses and former vice president Joe Biden dominated the polls in South Carolina.

North Carolina, which is generally a swing state, offers 110 delegates.

Beyond the federal races, there are also big state and local races on the ballot, including governor, lieutenant governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction.
