WILMINGTON, Del- Florida Power & Light workers on the front lines of sandy relief efforts in Delaware don't have to worry about missing next week's election.
The company is providing absentee ballots for the workers while they're away. Employees can vote... And FPL will make sure their ballot gets counted.
Ellis Clenton is a Production Lead from Sunrise, Florida. He says, "I've already had a couple of employees who took the opportunity to cast an absentee ballot. Of course, some have already voted, but the fact that our employees are taking the opportunity tells you its an appreciated effort."
Power restoration along the Northeast coastline is expected to last longer than election day. More than 860 FPL workers are helping seven different utility companies from Virginia to New Jersey get back up and running.
