Ericca Ellis rushed into John Eager Howard Elementary School at about 8:15 p.m., asking campaign workers outside: "Is it too late to vote presidential? I've got to vote for Bernie!"
After voting, the 24-year-old Ellis said she didn't know that voting had been extended by an hour. "I got lucky," she said.
Ellis, who manages a GameStop store, said she supports Bernie Sanders' efforts to raise the minimum wage and provide more rights for workers.
Derrel Jones, 29, also was lucky to learn that the John Eager Howard polling site stayed open late. He voted at 8:45 p.m. with his daughters De'aja, 8, and Ava, 2. He was excited to cast a vote for Sheila Dixon for mayor.
"We got to bring Sheila back in office," he said. "I like everything about her."
A couple candidates stopped by the extended voting at John Eager Howard, including Kim Trueheart, running for city council president, and council candidate Marshall Bell.
"I'm checking on my troops," Bell said. "They've been holding it down all day. How can I go back when they're still out here?"

From West Baltimore
A few people showed up to Catherine Pugh's West Baltimore campaign headquarters in hopes of getting paid for Election Day jobs that never materialized. People milled about outside the building, where security guards were posted at the entrance.
Tearria Edmonds and her fiancé Keith Robason said they signed up to work for the Pugh campaign during early voting, even filling out tax forms. When they showed up at 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday as instructed, there was no work for them.
Despite assurances Tuesday morning from a campaign spokesman that everyone who signed up to work would be paid, that wasn't the case, Robason said. "They ain't give us our money," he said.
Edmonds said she was frustrated that she paid for a babysitter for the day she signed up with the campaign then again on Tuesday, putting her in a hole without the $100 that she and her fiancé had each been promised.
"I feel like I was cheated. It was disorganized," she said.
Workers at Pugh headquarters would not answer questions from a reporter, saying: "You'll have to call the campaign."
