Though one-third of New Canaan remained in the dark late Sunday, power has been restored to the two polling locations in town, officials said.
According to Registrar of Voters George F. Cody, Saxe Middle School and New Canaan High School received power Saturday afternoon.
"There will be no changes to voting locations or voting hours of 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.," Cody said in a press release. "Voters will vote in the same locations as in the past, with District 1 voting in the High School, and Districts 2 and 3 voting at Saxe Middle School."
The news comes after the Town Clerk extended hours over the weekend to accept additional absentee ballot applications because her office saw such high demand—about 10 times the usual number. Connecticut Light and Power last week had vowed to restore power to 100-plus polling places that were in the dark at the time. The utility's line crews made progress over the weekend, reducing the overall number of homes without power in the state to fewer than 30,000 late Sunday—down from a high of more than 600,000.
