The morning after Sandi Ayala won reelection as Democratic registrar of voters, State Rep. Chris Caruso is calling for her resignation following a paper ballot gaffe that caused chaos on Election Day.
“It’s total incompetence that led to the disenfranchisement of thousands of voters,” Caruso says. The Big Wave and his supporters led the pulling operation in the North End for gubernatorial candidate Dan Malloy on a day a big-wave turnout hit the city electorate following Barack Obama’s Bridgeport visit on Saturday. Only 21,000 ballots were printed on a day roughly 26,000 had turned out. Caruso says he would also call for the resignation of the Republican Registrar Joe Borges, except Borges decided not to seek reelection and is serving out his final weeks.
