Let D be an integral domain, X be an indeterminate over D, and $N_v=\{f{\in}D[X]{\mid}(A_f)_v=D\}$. In this paper, we introduce the concept of t-locally divided domains, and we then prove that $D[X]_{N_v}$ is a locally divided domain if and only if D is a t-locally divided UMT-domain, if and only if D[X] is a t-locally divided domain.
