NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — People trying to vote Tuesday have been running into some problems. Two polling places in New Haven have run out of ballots, Jepson School and Ross Woodward School.
At least one of these two locations have received additional ballots delivered from Secretary of the State’s office, because of a shortage of ballots. One attorney, from their 100 attorneys on call, have been dispatched to Ross Woodward to investigate.
No one has been turned away in New Haven because of a shortage of ballots, as far as the office has determined.
Every town has an emergency plan in place if they run out of ballots, but did not confirm whether voting was stopped or delayed because of this or not.
Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said there was record turnout, as well as a record number of same-day registration in the state. But long lines were still an issue and led to high tensions at the polls.
