MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The polling time in Montgomery County has been extended after an early morning issue, according to the county probate office.

Montgomery County Probate Judge J.C. Love said a software issue prevented voters from checking in to vote Tuesday morning. After identifying the issue, the department contacted the electronic poll books’ vendor, KnowInk, and notified them of the issue. The issue was corrected systemwide by 7:45 a.m. and voters were allowed to vote.

Love said because of the issue, Montgomery County Circuit Judge Greg Griffin has extended voting until 7:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Those voters who vote during the extension period will submit a provisional ballot, which will be separated from other provisional ballots and counted. This is in accordance with Alabama state law, according to the probate office.

Additional details surrounding the issue were not given.
