Towns Hard-Hit By Storm Move Polling Places

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Ten Connecticut cities and towns hit hard by the recent autumn nor’easter are moving and consolidating their polling places for Tuesday’s municipal elections.

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said on Monday that some of the polling locations do not yet have electricity while others have been damaged or are currently be used as shelters and warming centers.

Polls will be open in most cities and towns from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Polling places are listed on the Secretary of the State’s website.
