WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Everyone’s vote counts Tuesday and the state of Connecticut is making sure of that.
The state is giving disabled voters a new way to cast their ballots this year. Secretary of State Denise Merrill says all polling places will have new computer tablets that those voters can use. Those tablets will allow them to vote via touch screen or with their voice. And people in West Haven seem to be pleased with the results.
“First I want to thank the state of Connecticut and town of West Haven. It’s the first time I’ve actually gone in and seen other people using the system which was nice to see. And second I think it’s gone smoother than it’s ever run before,” said Richard McGaffin.
Some of those residents in West Haven using the new system say it is the best voting experience they’ve had in a long time.
