Secretary of the State Denise Merrill is touring polling places in Bridgeport, Trumbull and Greenwich that have been affected by Superstorm Sandy.
Merrill was scheduled to meet with local election and government officials from all three communities on Friday. Besides visiting the voting locations, she planned to review preparations for Tuesday's presidential election.
On Thursday afternoon, Merrill said about 95 or so polling locations across the state remained without electricity. She said her office has been assured by the state's two largest electric utilities - Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating - that the polls are a high priority for power restoration.
A CL&P official said Thursday that if electricity cannot be restored in time for Election Day, the utility is considering options such as installing backup generators.
