Two Bridgeport residents accused of committing voter fraud by applying for absentee ballots for the November 2017 mayoral election in Stratford.
Police started investigating after the town clerk’s office in Stratford noticed some discrepancies in absentee ballots signed out by 56-year-old Troy Stevenson and 56-year-old Betty Chappell, both of Bridgeport.
Police said Stevenson and Chappell submitted at least two absentee ballots that were forged.
Chappell and Stevenson were charged with second-degree forgery and false statement in absentee balloting.
They were released on a written promise to appear and are due in court on Feb. 1.
