Conn. Agencies Regs. § 9-242a-6 - Election officials

Current through March 4, 2022

The election officials of each polling place shall consist of a certified moderator, at least one but not more than two official checkers for each line of electors, two registrars of voters or two assistant registrars of voters, as the case may be, of opposing political parties, at least one but not more than two voting tabulator tenders, at least one but not more than two ballot clerks, zero to two challengers and zero to two demonstrators. Demonstrators shall be appointed for the first election or primary at which the tabulator is used in the municipality. Subsequently, demonstrators shall be optional and other polling place officials of opposing political parties may demonstrate. Each registrar shall appoint half the number of each of such officials in a polling place. If absentee ballots are counted at the polls, other officials may perform this function, but, if needed, each registrar shall appoint half the absentee ballot counters who shall count in teams of two. If there is central counting of absentee ballots, the registrars shall appoint a central counting moderator and each registrar shall appoint half the absentee ballot counters who shall count in teams of two. In a primary, the registrar of the party holding the primary shall appoint one or two assistant registrars and shall divide the polling place officials equally as nearly as may be between designees of the party-endorsed candidates and designees of the challenging candidates. In a primary, the term "opposing political parties" as used in sections 9-242a-1 to 9-242a-28, inclusive, of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, shall mean polling place officials designated by opposing candidacies in the primary. In a primary, the assistant registrar, when performing duties under sections 9-242a-8, 9-242a-9, 9-242a-22, 9-242a-23 and 9-242a-27 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, and the registrar, when performing duties under sections 9-242a-25 and 9-242a-28 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, shall be accompanied by another polling place official, and one shall be the designee of the party-endorsed candidates and the other shall be the designee of the challenging candidates except in a presidential preference primary where, to the extent practicable, they shall be representatives of opposing candidates. In a presidential preference primary at which no other position is on the ballot, the minimum number of official checkers, voting tabulator tenders and ballot clerks shall be one of each such office, and if two such presidential preference primaries are held on the same day, the registrars may appoint one moderator and one head moderator to serve both primaries.
