Connecticut voters will be asked to approve a ballot question to support amending the state Constitution to provide for early voting.
When you are asked: “Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to permit the General Assembly to provide for early voting?” Vote: YES!
The Early Voting Amendment is on the ballot in Connecticut as a legislatively referred constitutional amendment on November 8, 2022. A “yes” vote means that you support for allowing in-person early voting before every election and making voting more accessible and flexible. A “no” vote means that you want elections to be restricted and exclusionary.
VOTER FLEXIBILITY: Voting on Election Day can be challenging for so many people across our state— working parents, older individuals, commuters, and more. Early voting means more flexibility to cast your ballot.
MODERNIZING OUR ELECTIONS: Connecticut is behind the rest of the nation. We’re one of only 4 states that doesn’t allow citizens to vote in the days leading up to Election Day. Independent studies say we’re one of the four hardest states in which to vote.
SECURE VOTING: Nationwide, millions of voters cast their ballots early by voting in the days leading up to Election Day. These votes are securely recorded and counted, just like those who choose to cast their vote on Election Day.
REDUCING WAIT TIMES: No one likes long lines and delays at the polls on Election Day. Early voting will increase voter turnout while also providing flexibility, security, and convenience.
Early voting will ensure every eligible voter who wants to take the time and responsibility to vote can safely have their vote counted and their voice heard, no matter if they choose to vote early or on Election Day. It’s a win-win for all voters.
We need all hands on deck to spread the word and educate voters on why they should vote YES on early voting. Sign up and add your name to join our grassroots team!
Democrats, Republicans, and Independents from all parts of Connecticut support Early Voting. Why? Because making voting easier and more accessible means greater flexibility for all of us. Early voting means modernizing our elections in a safe, secure way to move Connecticut into the future.
