Storm's impact on Conn. polling places assessed

Posted: Updated:

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's elections chief will be speaking with local officials to assess how Superstorm Sandy may affect preparations for voting on Election Day next Tuesday.

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill says she'll speak with hundreds of local officials on a conference call on Wednesday. She says her office has been in contact with state and local emergency management officials since before the storm and with Connecticut's utilities in case polling places or town offices are without electricity.

Merrill says Connecticut law allows polling sites to be changed before an election if Democratic and Republican voter registrars agree to move or consolidate polling precincts.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has extended the in-person voter registration deadline to Thursday from Tuesday.
