Complaints at Polls Over Write-In Candidates

The Green Party of Connecticut has complained that some town ballots have little or no space for write-in votes.

Party spokesman Tim McKee said Tuesday it was nearly impossible to write in candidates in Middletown and that ballots in some towns -- Glastonbury, Madison, Torrington, Waterbury and Windham -- had no space for write-in votes.

He says ballots in other towns provided one square inch to write in candidates.

McKee says Green Party candidates Jeff Russell of Glastonbury, a write-in for U.S. Senate, and Don Alexander of Torrington, a state Senate write-in candidate, did not have space for their names to be recorded.

A spokeswoman for the state Elections Enforcement Commission did not immedidately return phone calls.
