— A vehicle crash into an electric pole knocked out electricity this morning in parts of Springboro, leaving two election polls without power.
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.
Electricity was restored to Springboro around 8:20 a.m. Large lines remained outside the doors at the polling locations.
The crash occurred around 7 a.m. at East and East North streets in Springboro. (Near intersection of Ohio 741 and Ohio 73).
