Judge to issue ruling Thursday in Bridgeport absentee ballot case

Posted: Updated:

A judge said Monday an expected ruling will be announced Thursday in the Bridgeport absentee ballot case.

The decision will be whether to delay next week's election for mayor and to hold a new Democratic primary.

Mayor Joe Ganim won the race against fellow Democrat Marilyn Moore thanks to absentee ballots that people mail in ahead of time.

But nearly a dozen voters testified that they had cast absentee ballots even though they didn't qualify for them. Others testified that someone else signed their ballot applications.

The hearing is scheduled for Thursday at 3 p.m.
