Bucks County Scrambles to Get Polling Places Ready

Bucks County election officials will hold an emergency meeting today at 1 p.m. to determine what polling locations are working after Hurricane Sandy.

Normally, voting machines are delivered more than a week before the election, but because the roads were impassable after Hurricane Sandy, Bucks county didn’t get them until late last week.

And the county doesn’t even know now which of its 215 polling places are ready for the election.

"The hauler has to call every polling place and reschedule delivery," Deena Dean, Director of Bucks County Board of Elections and Registration told CNN last week. "So as the hauler reschedules deliveries, we are being notified of that."

Dean said she wasn't sure what Election Day would look like. To that point, Dean and election officials are holding a meeting today at 1 p.m. to determine what polling locations will be ready, and which need to be changed.

Ron Ruman, spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of State, said in the report the he doesn't anticipate tremendous disruptions.

"Counties have emergency plans that are put in place every year. It's not unusual for us to have polling places every year that need to be changed (for one reason or another)," Ruman said.

 Come back to Patch for an update on your polling place later today.
