Early voting and no-excuse absentee ballots could be coming to Connecticut. Here’s what’s been proposed and how it would work.

Secretary of the State Denise Merrill has championed no-excuse absentee ballots and early voting since she took office as the state’s chief election official in 2011. “Connecticut voters deserve the opportunity to vote by the method of their choice — in-person in a polling place, in-person before Election Day or by absentee ballot without needing an excuse — just like the voters in 43 other states,” Merrill said. “In 2020, through the hard work of local election officials of both parties, Connecticut proved that we can allow our voters to choose to vote conveniently. It is time to remove the remaining obstacle from the constitution to make this a reality for future elections.”
