HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Madison County election officials were working to reduce wait times Tuesday afternoon at a Huntsville polling location where some voters waited for hours to cast their ballots.

Some voters at West Huntsville Church of Christ said they waited almost four hours Tuesday morning to vote. A long line was still wrapped around the building around 3 p.m.

Madison County Probate Judge Frank Barger said the church had a high voter turnout and was one of the worst wait times in the county.

Barger, who visited the site multiple times throughout the day, said he was able to shave nearly two hours off the wait time by adding additional workers at the check-in. Workers were letting 45 people in at a time, he said.
