- On the ballot this November : There is a referendum on the ballot that would change our state’s constitution to allow legislators the flexibility to enact some of these methods of voting. Assume that the referendum passes. Students will be testifying about whether to enact changes such as no-excuse absentee voting, early voting or vote-by-mail. They can also testify not to change anything by supporting leaving current voting laws in place.
- Absentee and Early Voting (National Conference of State Legislatures [NCSL]) Contains information on no excuse absentee voting and early voting, both of which CT does not have.
