EARLY VOTING IN CONNECTICUT
LWVCT has started our advocacy in support of early voting in Connecticut. LWVCT participated in a press conference with the Secretary of the State, Denise Merrill, to encourage support for early voting legislation. In order to get early voting, a constitutional amendment must be proposed and approved by the General Assembly before it can go to the voters. We would like to see it on the 2020 ballot and to achieve this goal, it will take 75% approval by our state representatives. We will alert you as this bill works its way through the Government, Administration and Elections Committee and onto the floor of the General Assembly. It is not too early to start promoting early voting with your legislators and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
