Storm alters voting plans in Connecticut
Nine cities and towns hit hard by the recent autumn nor’easter are moving or consolidating their polling places for today’s municipal elections because they lacked power or had too much storm damage. Affected towns include Avon, Bloomfield, Newington, Plymouth, Simsbury, Somers, South Windsor, Stafford and Vernon. Officials in Farmington were deciding yesterday whether to go to court and postpone their local election. Democratic Registrar Barbara Brenneman said power was still out in three out of the town’s four polling places.
