HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Republican candidate for governor is raising concerns about what he’s calling a “mass swearing in” of new voters in New Haven and at the University of Connecticut.
In a series of tweets, Bob Stefanowski’s campaign claims people are being allowed to vote even though their Election Day registrations have not been processed. The campaign says such ballots “should be kept separate and counted as provisional,” claiming what’s allegedly happening is illegal.
A message has been left with the Secretary of the State Denise Merrill’s spokesman.
Earlier Tuesday, Merrill said about 8,000 people had used Connecticut’s law allowing them to register and vote on the same day. She has advised people to register early so they can be entered into the computer system before the polls closed.
