Conn. Agencies Regs. § 9-242a-19 - Blank ballot

Current through March 4, 2022

A blank or unreadable ballot is one on which the tabulator cannot read a single vote for any office. If this occurs, the tabulator tender shall review with the elector the instructions and direct the elector to obtain a new ballot. If the elector requests that the ballot be processed when no votes are readable by the tabulator, the voting tabulator tender shall instruct the elector that the ballot will be counted by hand after the polls close, but if the election officials are unable to determine the intent of the elector, some or all of his votes could be lost. If the elector insists that the ballot be processed, the elector shall then be instructed to deposit the ballot in the auxiliary bin.
