(CNN) - A power outage briefly delayed voting in Akron, in the battleground state of Ohio Tuesday. Summit county Board of Elections director Marijean Donofrio says the power went out at two polling places, a school and a community center for about 20 minutes for an unknown reason. Donofrio says election officials were able to restore electricity using a generator. She says turnout in the county has been heavy but voters in line at the times the polls closed at 7:30pm would be eligible to vote.
Ok, I smell a rat.
A big smelly rat.
This one reeks to high heaven.
Gee, maybe they should check for plumbers?
Once again OHIO is suspect, this is a travesty. I will petition all if this election is stolen!
No CNN! They just mentioned. America Tomorrow! There will be no: America Tomorrow. Just America of yesterday!! Welcome to the real world.. You did not lose your twin-towers in vain... Now you can join the Arab-republic......
Here we go again.
So there was all the buzz that 1/3 of registered voters voted early/absentee this year. when are these votes counted? if we voted weeks ago why are those numbers not already reported?
Are there electronic voting machines there? Lost votes due to power outages? Why won't diebold let me get access to money that isn't mine, yet is able to so screw up an election? As an Akronite who voted provisionally, I'm scared that we'll get screwed either way.
Obama/ Biden '08
Here's to getting our votes counted.
very very suspicious. for an unknown reason. suspiciously suspicious
..and when all the lights came back on, all of the voting booths had been switched with exact replicas.
let the vote tell the story instead of trying to minipulate the people.
Hello Diebold! :(
Holy crap I live in Akron, and I didn't find out about the outage until I read this page.
Good thing I voted early.
Weather in Akron today was perfect. No wind storm or rain what could possibly make the power go out on that side of town? Hmmm something here is fishy.LOL
I live in the exact neighborhood where the power went out. The power outage was not confined to the polling places. Street lights were not functional in part of the neighborhood, and some businesses were without power as well. Now, as to the cause of the power outage, I will not speculate.
OH please! Give me a break.....suspicious?
Are you kidding me? Can't this country at least figure out electricity? I really hope this incident will not lead to a scandal
It was incredibly easy to vote early. I'm not sure why everyone didn't. I walked in with three forms of ID weeks ago and was done in minutes.
HA! How strange that this would happen in Akron OH.
Another attempt at stealing the election. Out of all places two polling places misteriously lose power. SO brazen.
Hey everyone, I hope you all got out to vote today! I just wanted to let you know of this hysterical video I found that makes fun of the presedential race called ANYONE CAN BE VP. It's probably the funniest video I have ever seen. Have a wonderful night, just go to youtube and put it in the search bar!
Wait a minute I live in akron ohio and I don't recall a blackout happening.This is how it all starts.
