Green Party to File Complaint Over Connecticut Ballot

Green Party officials say the write-in space is less than an inch

The Green Party says it plans to file a complaint with Connecticut election officials because the state's ballots don't have enough space to write in candidates.

Tim McKee of the Green Party's national committee says the write-in space is less than an inch. He says that makes it nearly impossible to write in any candidate's name, and he's worried that some write-in votes won't be counted because candidates' names won't be legible.

Green Party and Libertarians were unable to get their major candidates on the Connecticut ballot because of questions about petition signatures. They were forced to wage write-in campaigns. Both parties claim state officials improperly excluded hundreds of petition signatures.

A message seeking comment was left for the secretary of the state's office.
