WARREN COUNTY, Ohio -- A polling place serving six precincts in Middletown has been moved because of a power outage, the Journal-News reports.

Warren County Board of Elections chairman Jeff Monroe said a traffic crash knocked over a utility pole, cutting power to Grace Baptist Church.

Voters who normally go to Grace Baptist should go to Crosspointe Church of Christ, 5630 Ohio 122, in Franklin.

The county engineer’s office is putting up detour signs, and the Emergency Management Agency is notifying the 3,700 registered voters affected in those precincts of the location change, Monroe told the Journal-News.
