OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma County election officials have gotten votes counted after power outages caused by tornado-producing storms delayed the count.

Ballots and memory packs from the ballot boxes were brought to the county election office Tuesday night and sheriff's deputies put them in a vault and guarded them until they were counted Wednesday.

Among the races decided in the election former state Sen. Angela Monson defeated former Oklahoma City Mayor Kirk Humphreys in the race for Oklahoma City School Board chairman.

Humphreys had been appointed to the post after the previous board chairman resigned.

Monson received almost 57 percent of the vote - 6,387 to Humphreys' 4,840.
