Power promised at all Conn. polling places Tuesday

Connecticut utility companies say all polling places in the state will have power on Election Day Tuesday, although some might be running on generators. Officials with Connecticut Light & Power Co. said Sunday that about eight polling places remain without electricity in the southwestern part of the state. The utility said it will have generators in place at voting locations if it cannot restore power to them by Tuesday morning. A spokesman for United Illuminating said power has been restored at all 192 polling places in the Bridgeport and New Haven areas that the company serves. The two companies reported a combined 66,700 remaining outages Sunday, down from a peak of 625,000 after Hurricane Sandy.
