FAIRFAX, Va. (CBSDC) – The tallying of votes in Virginia was suspended for an hour and a half as lines wrapped around buildings after the polls closed at 7 p.m.

The Virginia Board of Elections made the decision to suspend reporting election results at about 7:30 Tuesday night.

The Board consulted with Republican and Democratic parties, and the consensus was to delay reporting the results to avoid influencing the thousands of voters who were still in line.

Some voters are still reporting long lines.

One voter at Potomac Middle School in Woodbridge said lines were still snaking through the school.

As a result, polls in Prince William County — a heavy battleground at the presidential level — could remain open until after 10 p.m.
