Gas leak causes early voting location to shut down

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A gas leak caused an East Memphis early voting location to shut down for several hours Thursday.

The election commission said voting was originally moved to the parking lot of Colonial Baptist Church, before MLGW asked for the entire property to be evacuated.

The polling location opened back up about three-and-a-half hours later.
