BRIDGEPORT - Polls have closed in Bridgeport after several polling places in the city remained open an extra two hours tonight.

The extended hours were the result of ballot shortages at several locations. The affected locations were Park City, Longfellow, Beardsley, Read, Central, Winthrup, Hallen, Hooker, Blackrock, JFK, Blackham, and City Hall.

The Secretary of the State's office says they told officials at all affected locations to follow protocol, which is to photocopy ballots, seal them, and then count them by hand.
