Salem outages don't stop voting

By Vindicator Newsroom (Contact)


Published March 4, 2008

SALEM — Icing on trees in Salem resulted in power outages that did not affect voting.
Broken limbs took out some lines about 11 a.m. today. Mark Durbin, a spokesman for Ohio Edison, said some wires leading to the Pidgeon Road substation were also damaged.
Some 380 customers had power quickly restored but another 500 customers were still without power because of the damage at the substation.
In the surrounding area, about 1,500 customers were still without power about 3:30 p.m. Many of downed lines affected only one or two homes.
He estimated that all power should be restored by 7 p.m. That could change if icing continues. Despite the icing on trees, streets were passable.
Lois Gall, director of the Columbiana County Board of Elections, said she had not heard of any polls being affected. The county’s voting machines have backup batteries.
