Hartford Voters Report Slew Of Problems At Polls

 

 

 

” Hartford voters reported a slew of problems at the polls first thing on Tuesday morning — with no monitors at one site, voter registration books missing from another and voting machines that weren’t working.

  Some callers said lines were building and would-be voters gave up without casting a ballot to get to work on time.

  The moderator at the Hartford Seminary polling location in Hartford said they did not have a list for registered voters to check in. Instead, each voter was writing his or her name, address and phone number down on a blank piece of paper and then received a ballot.

  The registration log has since arrived and Gov. Dannel Malloy was able to vote when he arrived this morning.

” A little mix-up here in Hartford with precincts opening up without lists. That’s a little disturbing, but we’ll put it in context. There’s a lot of people that are going to vote today,” he said.   

  With people voting in 169 municipalities today, there are bound to be some wrinkles Malloy said.”

   The State has to get this experience correct just once a year so they have three hundred and sixty three days to prepare and they still cannot be trusted to get it right . Telling , very telling .
