Lieberman-Lamont: Early Problems with Voting

| Tue Aug. 8, 2006 3:08 PM EDT

WTNH in Connecticut reports:

A dozen voters waited in line at the Davis Street School in New Haven this morning ready to cast their ballot in the state primary. But the machines were locked.

"If they don't do it in thirty seconds Mr. DeStefano may lose a vote," voter Kelly Garner said.

Though polls open at 6:00 a.m. sharp, Davis Street didn't open until 6:35.

"I found no voting booths open," said Dr. Herbert Sacks. "That's the first time in thirty years that anything like this has happened."
