Connecticut Secretary of State Issues Warning to Residents Amid Ballot Fraud Concern



Residents in Connecticut are being warned to vote in person as reports of voter fraud are on the rise.

On Monday, Connecticut Sec, of State Stephanie Thomas (D) released a statement urging citizens to vote in person amid concerns regarding absentee ballots.

According to NBC Connecticut, an excerpt from Thomas’ statement read:

“Our monitors cannot do it all, and we encourage anyone who can do so to vote in person on January 23rd.”

“If someone voted by absentee ballot, but is unsure if they should have done so, they may withdraw their absentee ballot by going in person to the Town Clerk’s office before 10 a.m. on Election Day, and they may then vote at their assigned polling place.”

The CT Examiner reported that Connecticut’s state leaders are attempting to have an increased worker presence at election sites during the Jan. 23 Primary.  However, Thomas states that “election officials monitoring the Bridgeport elections cannot do it all.”

The unusual statement and measures follow a recent controversy regarding a Democrat primary race where evidence indicated incumbent mayor Joe Ganim attempted to win the election via absentee ballots.

In that race, Ganim was trailing challenger John Gomes but just 487 votes in the final hours of the election. However, as ABC 7 NY reported, by the next morning Ganim declared himself the winner by 251 votes after suspicious absentee ballots were added to the tally.

After officials investigated the matter, Superior Court Judge William Clark determined “the reliability of the result of the election is seriously in doubt” and ruled the election results null and void.

Clark stated: “The volume of ballots so mishandled is such that it calls the results of the primary election into serious doubt and leaves the court unable to determine the legitimate result of the primary.”

The CT Examiner reported that Sec. Thomas authorized two election monitors to supervise early voting at the Town Clerk’s office. These monitors have worked with election staff daily since Dec. 29.
