COVID-19 and Patient Voting

Here is how COVID-19 is affecting Patient Voting in this state:

By Executive Order of the Governor, the date of the Connecticut Presidential Preference Primary has been moved from April 28, 2020 to June 2, 2020. You may vote by absentee ballot if you qualify for one of the conditions currently in place by Connecticut, such as having an illness or physical disability that prevents you from voting in-person on Election Day. More information on this process can be found here.

 

However, the office of the Secretary of State has come out in support of providing absentee mail-in ballots for all voters, regardless of the formal conditions for absentee voting, to minimize the need to vote in-person at a polling station. A press announcement can be found here. These plans are still being deliberated and discussed, and the most recent updates on your ability to vote absentee can be found here or by contacting the Secretary of State's office.
