Secretary of the State Denise Merrill on passage of the Early Voting Constitution Amendment by the GAE Committee

“More than 46 million people nationwide voted early in 2016 and Connecticut voters can join them if the Early Voting Constitutional Amendment is enacted. I applaud the GAE Committee for taking this important first step in passing the amendment out of committee, and I look forward to it getting a full airing – and a vote – on the floor of both chambers of the General Assembly this session.” – Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill
