COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Some metro Atlanta voting precincts will remain open late on Tuesday after the locations experienced issues.

Below is a list of the counties that have made changes so far.

A judge has ordered for eight Cobb County polling locations to remain open late on Tuesday. In a news release, the county said the order comes after "various issues caused the precincts to open late this morning for the municipal and ESPLOST election."

Many of the delays were minor technical issues that were quickly resolved. However, one precinct had to be evacuated for a short time when a fire alarm went off in the building. Below is the list of polling locations that will stay open late with their times: 

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