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.

Officials in Farmington still need to decide whether to hold their local elections. Democratic Registrar Barbara Brenneman said power is still out in three out of the town’s four polling places. She said electricity was restored at point on Monday morning but soon went out again.
