Ballots from last week's primaries are sitting under lock and key, waiting to be recounted at Town Hall. Greenwich election officials received notice from the state that a mandatory audit must be done from Riverside School, which is Polling District 5.
Since the state starting mandating audits in 2007, Greenwich has been picked six out of the seven elections. According to published reports, the town's two registrars of voters were not pleased with the news. Democratic Registrar Sharon Vecchiolla said they could do without an audit this year. Republican Registrar Fred DeCaro III said he was surprised Stamford wasn't chosen as well. Of the 722 voting precincts throughout the state, 73 were chosen and must do an audit between Aug. 25 and Sept. 15.
The Greenwich audit is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 25, at in the Town Hall Meeting Room. Eight paid poll employees will hand-count the ballots for lieutenant governor for both the Democrat and Republican parties.
