Connecticut voters will get a chance to decide if they want early voting at the polls.
Lawmakers gave final approval to a measure Thursday that will place the question on the November 2022 ballot.
It would let Connecticut residents head to the polls in-person ahead of Election Day.
If voters decide to amend the state constitution, lawmakers will come back in 2023 to figure out how many days of early voting the state would have.
“On Election Day 2022, Connecticut voters will get to decide if they want the option of voting in person before Election day – just like the voters in 44 other states. As Florida, Texas, Georgia, and other states are moving to restrict voting rights, I’m proud that Connecticut is doing the opposite, addressing our burdensome and restrictive laws, and making voting more accessible to every eligible Connecticut citizen," says Secretary of the State Denise Merrill in a statement.
