Some Berks polling places may be in jeopardy following Sandy

READING, Pa. - Officials in Berks County are working on contingency plans in case power problems affect voting locations.

The elections office is regularly checking on polling places. More locations seem to be getting power back everyday, officials said.

On Monday, officials will decide if any places need to be moved. They'll then notify voters.

"What we'll do is utilize the media, like we're doing now, to get the word out, and then we'll post a notice on the old polling place to let people know where to vote next Tuesday," said Debbie Olivieri, Berks County Election Services.

Election officials said they hope power problems won't affect voter turnout.
