Connecticut Election Regulator Blames Late Primary Ballots on USPS

CT Newsjunkie reports that state elections regulators want the Inspector General for the US postal service to look into the late arrival of ballots in Enfield’s primary in August. 234 absentee ballots arrived at the Town Hall two weeks after the primary election date. The State Elections Enforcement Commission, which investigated the issue, says it found no problems with Enfield’s election officers. It says it appears as if the postal service mishandled the ballots and it recommends the Inspector General look into a potential problem with specific mailbox and mail route within the town.
