HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The State Elections Enforcement Commission plans investigations into more than a dozen alleged election issues in Connecticut.

Hearst Connecticut Media reports that Secretary of the State Denise Merrill recently referred 18 issues to the commission, which voted last week to look into them.

In Hamden, commission investigators will probe a long-standing ballot error that caused residents in one portion of the city to cast ballots in the wrong state Senate district during four election cycles.

The commission will also look into whether New Haven registrars failed to properly staff Election Day Registration, prompting massive lines, frustration and a court case.

There were also alleged problems in Groton, Mansfield and Derby.

The commission will also look into whether 10 towns failed to set up voting equipment accessible for the hearing impaired.
