I just spoke to Bridgeport mayor Bill Finch about the ballot situation. He said that now that the polls are closed, they need to make sure every vote is counted.
When I asked him who was responsible for ordering the ballots, he replied "the registrars of voters". Since there's a Republican and a Democratic registrar, I asked him how the decision is made. He replied that he wasn't aware of the way the decision is made, but he promised to look into it after the votes are counted.
