Long lines in Bridgeport push voting past 8 p.m.

BRIDGEPORT — Nearly an hour after polls closed, Bridgeport voters are still casting ballots. An official at the city’s registrar of voters office has confirmed that lines were so long at 8 p.m. that people are still voting. One of the schools rumored to have the heavy turnout is Luis Munoz Marin on the city’s East Side. Although polls are closed at 8 p.m. in Connecticut, anyone already waiting in line at that time has to be given the opportunity to vote.

    Got to Blackham & people had been in line for hours! I went home dissapointed, You should not have to wait 2-3 hours to vote. Totally unfair.

    It took 40 minutes to vote at Central High School this morning and I arrived at 5:55 am.

    The line for my district had a single think packet listing our names with one girl searching while her partner took a look at my license. It was very inefficient. There were at least 150-200 people waiting to vote while about 4 or 5 booths out of 20 were being used at a time!
