HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut utility companies say all polling places in the state will have power on Election Day on Tuesday, although some might be running on generator power.

Officials with Connecticut Light & Power Co. said Sunday that seven polling places in Guilford, New Canaan, Stamford and Greenwich remain without electricity in its coverage area in the southwestern part of the state.

CL&P says it's working to restore power or install generators at the seven locations by Sunday night.

A spokesman for United Illuminating says power has been restored at all 192 polling places in the Bridgeport and New Haven areas that the company serves.

The two companies reported a combined 63,460 remaining outages Sunday, down from a peak of 625,000 after Superstorm Sandy.
