Polls close at 8 p.m. in Dover after email mishap
DOVER — Polls will stay open until 8 p.m. in Dover after an email went out to voters reporting the wrong poll closing time.
The judge ruled in favor of the Democratic party to keep the polls open later after Dover sent out an email saying the polls closed at 8 p.m., when they were scheduled to close at 7 p.m.
"The Town of Dover sent out incorrect information. The Democratic Part simply asked that polls remain open until 8 p.m. to ensure that every voter is able to exercise his or her right to vote. We are glad that the Merrimack County Superior Court granted our motion to allow Granite Staters to continue voting and overruled the objection filed by the New Hampshire Republican Party to close polls," said NHDP Chairman Ray Buckley.
The motion to intervene and objection to petition to extend polling hours in the city of Dover was filed by the GOP. Read the full motion here.
