House Passes Early Voting BillMay 5, 2023
Connecticut voters asked the legislature for more voting options through a constitutional amendment on early voting that they overwhelmingly approved, and we are answering the call.
On Thursday, the House of Representatives approved H.B. 5004, a measure that will allow early voting in our state beginning in 2024.
This legislation modernizes the state's elections and allows for more convenience and fairness in the process, reflecting the realities of hectic modern-day life.
Eligible voters will be able to cast their ballots in person ahead of Election Day for both regular and special elections, as well as primaries.
Passage of this bill in the House is a step toward improving access to the ballot box for all eligible Connecticut voters.
I look forward to the next step, which is debate in the Senate.
