MURRYSVILLE (KDKA) — Some voters in Westmoreland County are seeing unprecedented lines this Election Day.
Polls closed in Pennsylvania at 8 p.m., but at one polling place in Murrysville, the wait to cast a ballot was still nearly two hours long an hour later.
Dozens were waiting in line Tuesday evening at the Newlonsburg Presbyterian Church on Old William Penn Highway.
Voters say they’ve never seen anything quite like this.
KDKA’s Kym Gable: “Your wife told you to bring a chair?”
Voter: “She works at the School for Blind Children. She came here right after work at 5 o’clock and never got out of here till 6:46 p.m.”
Voters in line there by 8 p.m. are being allowed to cast their ballot, but a poll worker cut off the line there at that time.
