(Reuters) – Some 1.4 million homes and businesses remained without power on Monday morning due to damages from superstorm Sandy, down by about 500,000 from Sunday, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability said in a report on Monday morning.
The figure is down about 1.1 million from Saturday, when 2.5 million customers had no power.
The bulk of outages remained in New Jersey, with some 20 percent of customers or 780,000 without power, followed by New York, with about a half million still without power, the DOE report said.

Regardless of the power issue; how many of these people will not be able to reach a polling station due to destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy ? Let’s just say half of these without power will not be able. That’s 700,000 or almost three quarters of a million people who may not vote. Of course we’ve known for years voting is an illusion to make you think you have a say or choice in the matter. Silly silly ‘meat puppets’.
