A D.C. superior court judge has rejected a request by the Gray Campaign to extend voting hours to 10:00 p.m.

Lawyers for Gray and Mayor Adrian Fenty were in court tonight. Gray's campaign sought to have polling hours extended because of what it says were problems at the polls, including late openings and malfunctioning machines.

But Judge Joan Zeldon denied the request. She didn't give a reason for doing so, but before the ruling she warned that she would be very cautious to use judicial power to interfere in an election.

So, in the D.C. mayoral there isn't any more campaigning to do: it's now time to wait for the results.
