The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors will not keep polls open past 7 p.m. after several advocacy groups complained some voters had issues casting ballots.

Board spokesman Fields Moseley said keeping the polls open late would be unprecedented and could confuse voters, delay returns and have unintended consequences.

Students on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe have waited in long lines most of the day, and several advocacy groups called on the supervisors to keep polls open beyond 7 p.m.

Feminist Majority, a group that works with students on voting rights, said the nine voting stations at the campus polling location were not sufficient. The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law said that technology glitches and printing problems meant some people could not vote.
