Long Lines Of People Waiting To Vote At End Of Election Day

April 8, 2014, 7:26 PM by Brady Mallory

Long Lines Of People Waiting To Vote At End Of Election Day

From long lines to a mad dash to get into the doors, some voting centers had crowds of people waiting to cast their ballots.  The polls were set to close at 7 p.m.  However, centers will allow everyone to get in to vote.

There was about a 45-minute wait to vote at the voting center at Faith Baptist Church.  One woman, who did not want to do an on-camera interview, told KELOLAND News she saw people running toward the door.

City Clerk Lorie Hogstad said she was expecting a massive turnout for this city election.  She expected the four ballot issues to bring out a lot of people, due to the widespread attention they received in the months leading up to Tuesday's city election.

Hogstad says it could be a late night for counting ballots as there was a rush of voters in the final hour.

You can view results as they are reported on our Election Results page.
