Friday, July 27, 2012 — The Southington Citizen

Clerks Continued from page 4 moderators and town clerks in the scrupulously checked and balanced vote count with the number of voters who signed in at the polls and absentee ballots counted on election day. In multi-districted towns like Southington sealed bags of ballots and tabulator tapes are checked at each polling place by election officials and brought to a central election headquarters in town by a designated member of each political party where verification procedures and forms are com-

pleted before being delivered by election officials to the Secretary of State’s office. Mullady pointed out that town clerks offices are also responsible for qualifying the signatures on candidates’ petitions and that voter registrations are on a central system to which town clerks have access to corroborate qualification of voters in a town. With the exception of the rare discrepancies in voting procedures, such as last year’s reports of voter fraud in Bridgeport, the closely monitored procedures appear to maintain the essentially secure election results citizens expect and deserve.

Bus Continued from page 16 the girls also hold bake sales around town. It started out with a few friends from elementary school, until Gibney said she started to branch out and ask other girls to participate, to where they are now with about 15 girls total in the group. Madison Yurgaitis said she started organizing supplies with the Gibney and the other girls and then became serious about the group. “The reactions to people’s faces when they get the

backpacks and the kids who really need it,” Yurgaitis said about what she likes most about giving back. “It makes you know you’re doing something good.” Marissa Matarazzo has

been with the group since it began, and her brother, Anthony, was there on Sunday to help the girls organize the piles of supplies. “I like how we help people,” she said.
