Statement from Secretary Merrill On House Passage of Early Voting Constitutional Amendment

HARTFORD: Secretary of the State released the following statement hailing action by the state House of Representatives on a proposed constitutional amendment to allow early voting in Connecticut.

“I applaud the House of Representatives in taking this important first step to bring Connecticut in line with the majority of states that allow Early Voting to make participating in our democracy more convenient for busy voters. More than one-third of voters in America voted before Election Day in 2016, and it is long past time to allow Connecticut voters to do the same. I look forward to seeing this proposal debated in and voted on by the Senate this year.”
