Monday to bring final word from state on polling places

Hartford - Secretary of the State Denise Merrill plans to announce Monday morning whether any polling places have moved due to lingering power outages.

About 50 of the state's 773 polling sites served by Connecticut Light & Power were still without electricity on Friday, her office said.

Registrars of voters in New London, in conjunction with the city clerk, have already relocated the city's third voting district polling site from Ocean Beach Park to the Harbor School building, 432 Montauk Ave., because of storm damage.

Merrill said earlier in the week that a polling site could still function without electricity, as voting machines can run on battery power.

Individuals who missed Thursday's voter registration deadline can still pick up a special presidential ballot from their local town hall on Election Day Tuesday. However, the ballot is for only the presidential race.
