In run-up to election, Pa. gets polls back online


HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Elections officials say power's been restored to more than 200 polling places in Pennsylvania over the past several days.

A Department of State spokesman said eight or nine remained without electricity as the day began Monday, but over the following few hours at least six of them had been put back online.

More than 250 were without power Friday.

A Bucks County spokesman says officials had to move only one poll, in Riegelsville, to a fire hall that has a generator.

Power's been restored at a site in Northampton County and a Monroe County elections official says crews hope to bring the last two locations back up this afternoon.

Utility officials say fewer than 30,000 customers remain out in Pennsylvania, down from more than 1.2 million after last week's storm.
