Polling places at Covenant Presbyterian on North Main Street and Clearcreek Chapel on Pennyroyal Road were without power for a little more than an hour, but Warren County Deputy Director of Elections Sharif Huff said voting did not stop.

The voting machines have eight hours of battery backup power, Huff said.
