More CT districts heading to recount

17th State Senate District heading to recount

Revised numbers show Republicans State Sen. George Logan leading by 65 votes.

NSONIA, Conn. (WTNH) - State Senator George Logan leads Democratic challenger Jorge Cabrera by 65 votes. The vote count originally submitted to the Secretary of the State office showed Cabrera leading by 187 votes, one vote more vote than necessary to trigger an automatic recount.

Revised numbers flipped the results when it was discovered at least 251 votes were improperly added to the totals.

Complicating the situation was an explanation given by Ansonia’s City Attorney John Marini.

Marini told the Valley Independent newspaper “As of right now, we know that two absentee ballots in 7th Ward were counted over 200 times. Trying to figure out more details.”

On Friday, he clarified the statement saying two ballots were not counted over and over.

“The ballots were not put through the machine 200 times,” Marini told News 8’s George Colli. “It appears it was a mistake made in reporting from the Registrar’s office to the Secretary of the State. Essentially, from what we’re being told, it was a data entry mistake.”

Marini says that instead of two absentee ballots being counted, they were reported as being in excess of 200 absentee ballots. Reporting errors to the Secretary of the State are not uncommon and procedures are in place to catch any mistakes, as in this case. Marini’s original comments, however, implied voter fraud took place. Marini and Mayor David Cassetti say the reason for the reporting error needs to be determined so it doesn’t happen again.

“I don’t know if it’s a human error or a computer error.” said Cassetti. “It could be a computer glitch. You’ll have to talk to the Registrar of Voters because I’m not in charge of none of that.”

The Ansonia Registrar of Voters office is closed on Fridays. Calls to the Democratic and Republican Registrars were not returned.

The recount in the State Senate race needs to happen before next Wednesday.

The first clue was that the Ansonia numbers reported to the campaign did not match what was reported to the state. 

Recount is mandatory for this margin of victory and they are scheduled for next Monday through Wednesday.

Republicans are "considering" challenging Democratic Joe Aresimowicz's 50-vote win, noting that absentee votes for his original opponent were not counted? WTF it should be a no brainer to count the absentee votes if more than 50 of them exist. That is why the Republicans loose. Dems wouldn't hesitate to force a recount. Note that Aresimowicz is the House Speaker. Would be hilarious if they forced a recount and he lost (won't happen though).

Another post-election recount added to Connecticut's list

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - There's a late addition to the list of postelection recounts still pending in Connecticut, and a possible legal challenge in another legislative race.

A spokesman for Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said Wednesday the office was notified late Tuesday by local registrars that the margin of victory in the 64th Assembly District is narrow enough to require a recount.

That district includes Canaan, Cornwall, Goshen, Kent, Norfolk, North Canaan, Salisbury, Sharon and Torrington.

Wednesday is the deadline to conduct a recount, but local election officials have until Friday to finish it.

Meanwhile, Republicans are considering challenging Democratic House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz's (ehr-eh-SIM'-oh-wits) 50-vote win, noting that absentee votes for his original opponent were not counted.

Recount results are pending in Stratford's House seat and the 17th state Senate District.

Recount is finished in the 17th and George Logan (R)  won by 75 votes.  This keeps the Dems from having a veto-proof majority in the Senate.
