The power is now back on at the Erath polling places, according to officials.


The power is out in Erath – on election day.

Police confirm there’s an outage. City is working on the issue but haven’t pinpointed the cause.

A spokeswoman said that, as is outlined in state law, anyone in line when the polls “close” at 8 p.m. is still allowed to vote.
