GOP Chair Complains About Photocopied Ballots in Bridgeport

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ 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.

Chris Healy sent the complaint to the Election Enforcement Commission and the Secretary of the State on Tuesday.

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.

Messages were left seeking comment with Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz .

Healy says allowing voters to use photocopied ballots violates the law and jeopardizes the integrity of the voting process and ballot security.
