Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said her office is "more prepared than they ever have been" for election day.
At her annual press briefing before election day, Merrill said her office has learned a lot since the 2010 election, when Bridgeport officials didn't order enough ballots.
"We now have an emergency plan in every town for elections," Merrill said, "and that's something we didn't have four years ago. That's another result of the 2010 election. Every town has an emergency plan that tells you what to do if the electricity goes off, who's in charge, where's the copy room if you need to copy some ballots -- which is, by the way, protocol."
