(CNN) - A federal judge has ordered 15 polling stations in Cuyahoga County, Ohio – home to the city of Cleveland - to remain open until 9 p.m. The order came after Barack Obama’s presidential campaign filed suit has asking that voting be extended there and in Franklin County, home to the city of Columbus.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton said, “Due to reports of ballot shortages in Cuyahoga and Franklin counties, we requested a voting extension in those counties. We received reports of numerous precincts that had outstanding requests into the Board of Elections for ballots. We are working to ensure that every Ohioan who wishes to cast a ballot today may do so.”
Officials are now in the process of deciding which polling places will remain open. The Franklin County public information officer said polls in his county closed on time.
