BRIDGEPORT - The results of the state's gubernatorial race have already been certified, but in Bridgeport, volunteers are continuing to recount ballots for all of the city's districts. The Connecticut Post is conducting the recounts with the help of about 20 volunteers at Bridgeport's City Hall Annex after filing a Freedom of Information Act request. The appeal was made after half of the city's districts ran out of ballots on Election Day.
The city's Democratic and Republican registrars of voters say the recount is unnecessary, but did show up at City Hall to offer assistance and answer questions.
Volunteers began the recount yesterday and have completed nine of the 25 districts. They say they hope to finish by Thursday or Friday.
