State Republican Chairman Chris Healy is claiming Election Day shenanigans in Bridgeport and is complaining to the Secretary of the State’s office over so-called transfer votes.
Healy said in a phone interview that while both Democratic and Republican registrars have to confirm transfers – when a voter shows up in another polling precinct from where they are registered, claiming they recently moved into the new district – GOP Registrar Joseph Borges has not been consulted. Instead, the Democratic registrar and town clerk have allowed the transfers.
“They haven’t been getting Joe Borges’s signature,” Healy said, adding that it leaves open the possibility of double voting.
“Obviously the Democrats in Bridgeport still won’t follow the voting rules,” Healy said. “They are allowing people to vote without permission of the Republican registrar. This is just another blatant campaign violation. We don’t know if it’s one case, 20 or 200. If we have to go to court we’ll go.”
