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.
