BOAC, MARINDUQUE—A power outage has hit several areas in Marinduque but did not delay the casting of votes in precincts in Boac, Gasan, and Buenavista towns.

A power line in Bognuyan in Gasan caused the power interruption that started at 9:46 a.m.

Marinduque Electric Cooperative (Mareco) officials said power would be restored in at least an hour.


Buenavista Election Officer Kris Olympia said there was no interruption in voting in the town.


She said the balloting proceeded since the vote-counting machines have a backup power supply.

Power had been restored in some of the affected areas as of 11 a.m., Mareco said.
