Audit of Conn. Election Results Moving Forward

Long lines at a polling station in Bridgeport.

The investigation into what went wrong on Election Day in Bridgeport picks up steam this week.

Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz and voting rights advocates are scheduled to hold a public drawing on Monday to randomly select voting precincts that will be included in a post-election audit.

A shortage of ballots on Nov. 2 forced the city to use photocopies and led to a court order that kept about half of the city's precincts open two hours late. The problems led to counting delays and threats of legal challenges.

The audit will not impact the results of the governor's race, narrowly won by Democrat Dan Malloy.

A panel set up by Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch to also look into the ballot shortage is scheduled to hold its first public meeting on Tuesday.
