HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was among early-risers who faced delays voting at Hartford polls.
Av Harris, spokesman for the state secretary of the state’s office, said “multiple” polling stations in the capital city did not receive printed voter lists in time for the 6 a.m. start of voting on Election Day Tuesday. He said “more than just a few” were affected.
A spokesman for the governor’s campaign says Malloy voted at about 7:45 a.m., 35 minutes after he intended.
Harris said lawyers are gathering information about polling places and state officials will make sure all eligible voters vote.
Election officials are being particularly careful to avoid a repeat of problems that marred vote-counting in Bridgeport in 2010. More voters than expected showed up at the polls and faced delays.
