Pa. Elections Official Says Hundreds Of Polling Places Still Without Power
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania elections official says between 250 and 300 polling places remain without power with just four days to go before the presidential election.
Department of State spokesman Ron Ruman said Friday the number continues to fall as crews work to restore electricity.
The bulk of them are in the southeast, Lehigh Valley and northeast, but others are scattered in other parts of Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania has about 9,300 polling places.
For those that remain without power on election day, county officials can move precincts, bring in generators or rely on the machines’ batteries for juice.
Pennsylvania voters will elect a U.S. senator, state attorney general, other row offices and state legislators.
