AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Polls across Texas are closed, including in Travis County, which stayed open two extra hours because freezing weather delayed the start of voting in the Austin area.

A district judge in Travis County approved a plan to keep polls open an extra two hours to 9 p.m. for the Democratic and GOP primaries.

Polls at most sites across Texas opened as normal Tuesday for the regular 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. voting period. But icy roads and wintry conditions in parts of Central Texas delayed the opening of Travis County voting locations until 11 a.m. Tuesday.
