Connecticut needs early voting and no-excuse absentee voting. We're one of only 7 states without some form of early in-person voting and one of only 16 states without no-excuse absentee voting. These restrictions harm all voters, and they especially harm Black and Latinx voters, people with disabilities, and people who lack job flexibility, transportation, or childcare.
H.J. 59 would give voters a chance to decide about whether our state should have early voting, and H.J. 58 would give voters a chance to decide about whether our state should have no-excuse absentee voting.
Both bills have passed out of committee, and the House of Representatives needs to bring them up to a vote before it's too late.
Early voting and absentee voting will make our democracy stronger by giving voters more options to access the ballot. Voters at least deserve the chance to decide whether to enact early voting and absentee voting for our state. Take action for voting rights now.
