Republican Bob Stefanowski‘s gubernatorial campaign has filed a request for a court injunction seeking to have the ballots from a group of new voters in New Haven and the University of Connecticut separated, but not disqualified.
A campaign spokesman says the votes should not count toward the final total until they’re determined to be legal.
Gabe Rosenberg from the Secretary of the State‘s office says some first-time voters in New Haven were allowed to vote after swearing as a group they’ve never been registered to vote before in Connecticut. The move was prompted by long lines of people seeking Election Day registrations.
Rosenberg says those votes are “being segregated and they’re being counted” toward the final count. He says officials will abide by a judge’s injunction, if one is issued.
