Court hearing set on same-day registration voting in New Haven, Mansfield
Republicans are challenging same-day voter registrations in New Haven and Mansfield.
According to the Hartford Courant, a Superior Court judge ordered some ballots cast by voters who registered on Election Day in New Haven and Mansfield be secured for possible review. Judge Cesar Noble said he would hold a hearing on Friday to determine whether the ballots, totaling about 600-800, needed to be individually reviewed.
ACLU of Connecticut legal director Dan Barrett issued a reaction stating in part, "New Haven's repeated failure to staff its polling places with enough workers to ensure people's rights to vote is practically inviting a lawsuit. The long lines and discouraged voters we saw today were a completely avoidable situation."
Barrett went on to say that the ACLU wants to hear from anyone who was turned away from voting.
