Long lines persist at Ellerbe Road church polling place
Wait can be as long as 90 minutes
Grace Community Church continued to be one of the busier Caddo Parish voting sites Tuesday, with some voters waiting up to 90 minutes to cast a ballot.
Many voters continued to converge on the Ellerbe Road site, home to five separate precincts, as their work days ended at 5 p.m. By 6 p.m. 3,772 voters had cast ballots, making it one of the bigger election day turnouts, according to poll workers.
The good news for persistent voters: if you're in line before official closing times for polls, you can still cast your ballot.
"I'm excited that so many people turned out for the opportunity to vote! I feel so patriotic," said Waynette Ballengee. "There's not a particular local issue that's hot topic for me; the presidential election is the key item that brought me out."
