Connecticut voters will be allowed to cast mail-in ballots for the presidential primary if a COVID-19 vaccine isn’t available by August

Under the new plan, Merrill’s office also will provide “secure and tamper-proof drop boxes manufactured specifically for the purpose of voting” so that absentee voters can drop off their ballots at their local town clerk’s office, according to the executive order. The state will purchase and distribute 174 American-made drop boxes to every town, including two for the five largest cities, and the $350,000 purchase will be funded by the federal CARES Act that sent millions to states to improve security and health safety protocols at voting places.
