Southwestern CT poll workers receive security training

Southwestern Connecticut poll workers received crucial security training Tuesday.



Several hundred poll workers were trained at Norwalk City Hall.



Each poll station will have a police officer and a bipartisan team of "challengers," who can challenge someone's eligibility to vote if there's any question who they are.



As for the ballots, election officials say none of the vote-counting machines are connected to the internet. But once the results are tabulated, they are electronically sent to the state in Hartford.
