Conn. Agencies Regs. § 9-242a-14 - Ballot clerks
Current through March 4, 2022
No ballot shall be issued unless the elector's name has been checked off the official checklist. As each ballot is spoiled, the ballot clerk shall so indicate on a ballot log worksheet. No replacement ballot shall be issued unless the spoiled ballot is returned to the ballot clerk. The ballot clerk shall mark "spoiled" on any spoiled ballot, avoid looking at the markings on the ballot and place it in a spoiled ballot envelope or other suitable container reserved for spoiled ballots. As ballots are being counted or handled, the ballot clerk shall check for serious printing problems, inform the moderator, mark the defective ballot "spoiled", place it in a spoiled ballot envelope or other suitable container and account for it on a ballot log worksheet. Any ballot found in a voting booth shall be marked "found in voting booth" and placed in the spoiled ballot envelope or other suitable container after the moderator makes a memorandum of the incident. When the polls close, ballot clerks shall record on a form prescribed by the Secretary of the State the total number of ballot packages received, the number of unopened ballot packages remaining, the number of loose ballots remaining and the number of spoiled ballots.
