Election Day severe weather: Some polling places in Tennessee lost power

National News From ABC

ABC News(NEW YORK) — The weather also left some polling stations in Tennessee without power, the state’s elections coordinator, Mark Goins, told ABC News. Most polling places have generators and batteries to continue running their election operations, but at least one polling station without power in Knox County was forced to use emergency paper ballots, Goins said.

He said he does not expect the loss of power to cause a significant delay of election results.

Over 1 million Tennesseans had voted early before this round of storms hit the state.

In other parts of the country, rain was forecast to change to snow in the Upper Midwest and around the Great Lakes, with some snow accumulation possible from North Dakota to the Twin Cities.

Snow is also expected in the northern Rockies, with half a foot possible.

Warmer weather is expected in the southernmost parts of the country, from Los Angeles across to southern Florida.
