HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Hartford City Council members say they will seek to remove the city’s three registrars of voters as a result of Election Day problems that delayed the start of voting in some precincts and kept some from voting.

Council members said they will file a resolution Wednesday that could begin the process removing Democrat Olga Vazquez, Working Families Party member Urania Petit and Republican Sheila Hall.

Council President Shawn Wooden said a vote is expected Monday.

The council can remove elected officials with seven of the nine members voting in favor.

A report issued Friday said Hartford registrars failed to provide the Secretary of the State with information about polling place moderators and failed to timely prepare and deliver final registry books by 8 p.m. the day before Election Day.
