Voting hours extended in Valdosta

March 2, 2004

Valdosta - Voting hours will be extended at two precincts because of bomb threats.

Around 11:30 this morning, Westide and Lomax-Pinevale Elementary schools were evacuated after someone called 911 and said there were bombs in the buildings. Students and voters were allowed back in after about an hour. Now, those precincts will be open longer.

"Voters that come in will vote provisional ballot which is a paper ballot, after hours by law according to Senate Bill 258," said Deb Cox, Elections Supervisor.

Lowmax-Pinevale will be open until 7:50 Tuesday night. Westside will close at 8:15.
