The right to have our vote counted and our voice heard is fundamental to American democracy.

Every qualified citizen has a right to vote, but too many people do not have a fair opportunity to cast ballots, so we’re working to amend Connecticut’s Constitution to permit early voting and “no excuse” absentee voting (voting by mail or via secure ballot drop box).  We support expansion of automatic voter registration, to add qualified citizens to the voter rolls when they do business with any state agency; those who don’t wish to register can opt-out.

We also support restoring the right to vote to individuals on parole.  Stripping the right to vote from those on parole is an act of disenfranchisement that has disproportionately impacted communities of color in Connecticut for far too long.

In May 2018, we won our fight to add Connecticut to the National Popular Vote Compact; if approved by states with at least 270 electoral votes, the compact will guarantee that the winner of the popular vote becomes president.
