According to the supervisor of elections Twitter feed, power went down around 4:45 p.m. today, Nov. 6.

“A transformer went out,” a Tweet from the SOE’s office said. “Backup generators kicked on. We have resumed printing in-person absentee ballots.”

The line outside the 2514 N. Falkenburg Road elections office was about 35 minutes long, officials reported shortly after the outage.

Power at the county’s voting precincts was not interrupted during the outage.
