Bridgeport holds meeting on ballot shortage

BRIDGEPORT - Residents were given the chance to talk about voting problems in Bridgeport this past Election Day during a meeting tonight.

A non-partisan panel, created by Mayor Bill Finch, and residents gathered at the City Hall Annex to express their displeasure with the city for its recent ballot shortage.

Earlier this month, the Democratic Registrar of Voters ordered only 21,000 ballots for the city's 68,000 registered voters.

During the meeting, the council also made suggestions to the city on how to avoid another shortage.
