Skip to comments.(CT) Hartford and Bridgeport Polls Run Out Of Ballots
Posted on 11/02/2010 3:51:28 PM PDT by LoneGOPinCT
Title was the report. Polling places in Hartford and Bridgeport have reported that they ran out of ballots. How does a polling place run out of ballots? Is there not a list with the number of registered voters in the district and wouldn't they have that number on hand?
The Secretary of State has instructed them to print more ballots.
Just seems odd and worthy of attention. Or am I being too cynical?
can’t trust ‘Rats to “print more ballots” without printing extras for ballot-box stuffing
Not good. Hartford and Bridgeport are the two largest cities in Connecticut and are where most Democrap vote fraud occurs.
The dead people used up the first batch of ballots, leaving none for the warm-blood residents.
Hartford and Bport big Dem strongholds.
I think they average the number of voters over the last few elections to determine the number of ballots. Not sure.
If they went by registered voters, they would always have a huge amount of leftover ballots.
I’ve never voted at any precinct, always voted absentee ballot.
Suspect indeed—especially with turnout apparently low in other inner-city areas across the country.
Not good but not the end
I would be very leary of doing anything to p!zz off Vince McMahon...the guy is ruthless and very smart....
I would refuse to move a foot until more ballots were secured. There is no excuse to have less ballots than eligible voters. Obviously not every eligible voter will vote but there needs to be at least a decent overshoot of ballots needed for a high turnout election model.
People do mess up their ballots from time to time, and have to request a new one. But that should get recorded.
make that “leery”...
I would think they'd print enough to cover each registered voter.
Someone get over there and verify the “long” lines and crowds of people that require the printing of more ballots. Video...
If they "ran out" it frequently means, I mean it could mean, that ten or twenty thousand got diverted to some other location (where there are three hundred #2 pencils filling in ovals as we speak).
Knowing the makeup of those cities it does sound odd.
Those precincts should be forced to subject themselves to investigation. Force them to mail everyone who voted an acknowledgment. When households with two registered voters receive 5 confirmations, 3 for people they never heard of, you can gauge the amount of ‘phantom’ voting.
Make them an example, put officials AND voters in jail, and keep doing it to suspect precincts until the rats are AFRAID to commit fraud.
This is BS. Earlier today the reports were higher than normal turnout in traditional Republican areas and lower than normal turnout in the Democratic areas. Local TV showed Bridgeport polling locations and it was nearly empty.
I vote in the same polling location as Blumenthal and Foley and this was the first time there was a line. It took 20 minutes which is usually a quick in n out. One thing they were doing was counting the number of voters against the number of ballots every hour. If the voters done show up, they can be running out of ballots.
So this story from the CT Democratic Secretary of State is bogus on its face. It sounds to me like a Soros operation like they had in Ohio last time.
Some places will have more votes than voters.
The fact that it’s Bridgeport and Hartford raises a big red flag. Not that Blumey needs the fraud, the average brain dead resident of the People’s Republic of Connecticut will vote for Hitler if he has a (D) after his name. McMahon’s no prize but as Beck was saying today ,”that guy [Blumenthal] is pure evil!”
I’d check any dumpsters behind the polling locations to see if any ballots had been thrown out...
oops should be
If the voters dont show up, they cant be running out of ballots.
Blumenthal fraud territory. Connecticut is a liberal shithole overrun with illegals, gangs, and Democrats. You can get a rash just driving thru there.
Once was a great state. Today it is a cesspool.
The chairman of the Connecticut Republicans has filed a complaint with state election officials, saying it was illegal for voters in Bridgeport to use photocopied ballots,,,
Healy says he learned that voting officials at certain Bridgeport polling places made photocopies of a ballot, which he said violates Connecticut’s strict procedures for printing, packaging, opening, stamping, storage, delivery and security of election ballots.
They better hope the Democrat wins the attorney general race.
Otherwise some Hartford and Bridgeport folks are going to the slammer.
Linda’s campaign needs to have a team of lawyers there now!
DSCC TAKING LEGAL ACTION
“Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chairman Robert Menendez says legal action has begun to resolve voting irregularities in Connecticut and Illinois.
Democrats are seeking a one hour voting extension in Bridgeport, Connecticut because the town ran out of ballots.”
Incredible. They found a guy from the Himes Campaign sitting at a desk in the Registrar’s Office, with a laptop and eating donuts.
Chicago politics have come to CT
BRIDGEPORT (AP) - The mayor of Bridgeport has asked Connecticut election officials to keep the polls in his city open until 10 p.m., two hours past closing because of a ballot shortage.
Nancy Nicolescu, spokeswoman for the State Elections Enforcement Commission said Tuesday the secretary of the state does not have the authority to keep the polls open late without a court order.
This so bogus.
CT judge has extended the polls open in Bridgeport until 10pm. 2008 repeat
(WTNH) - With all 23 voting precincts in Bridgeport running out of ballots, a judge agreed with Mayor Bill Finch that polls should stay open until 10pm.
Polls normally close at 8pm in Connecticut.
Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz says election officials only ordered 21,000 ballots in Bridgeport, far short of the 69,000 registered voters in the city.
No Problem Here,they just went to the Copy Machine and Photo copied the Ballots,Of Course they will not go through the Scanners now and must be Hand Counted. I guess they had a Few Car trunks filled with prefilled ballots just enough to win,Jim Himes who voted for Obamacare won by 500 votes ,well that sure followed the Nationwide trend
