The Texas Organizing Project won a lawsuit keeping some polls in Harris County open until 8 p.m. after a late start and malfunctioning equipment at some polling places.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday afternoon against Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart's office and the commissioners' court states voters were left to wait in an hour-long line after polls were unlawfully delayed.

The suit also states the county failed to provide functioning equipment at a number of polling places on Election Day.
