It’s a challenge enough to get voters to the polls, then add a power outage in the mix.

That’s exactly what happened at the South Central precinct in Bismarck yesterday.
The Burleigh County Auditor’s office tells us the power went out and stayed off for a few hours.
The precinct stayed open and functioned as normal, all vote counting machines have back up batteries, so they were unaffected.

The election site inspector visited the site today, saying everything is back up and running as normal.
