As we head into 2022—the year when voters will decide if our state will finally allow Early Votingplease take immediate action in support of Early Voting and two other key reforms.  

Ask your state senator and state representative to support an ambitious freedom to vote legislative agenda that must be prioritized as early as possible this legislative session, including:

1. Legislation to Ban Foreign Spending on State Ballot Referendums —such as on the Nov. 8, 2022 ballot question where voters will decide if our state will finally allow early voting.

2. Legislation to enact a Connecticut Voting Rights Act to give Black, Brown and other voters of color additional protections against voter suppression.

3. Legislation to enact A Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) Bill to create a task force to study the implementation of RCV for state, federal and municipal elections in Connecticut.

Common Cause in Connecticut members and allies statewide won huge voting rights victories in 2021​ after playing key roles ensuring all voters could cast absentee ballots due to Covid-19 for the 2020 Primary and General Elections.

In 2021 voters took huge steps forward toward Early and No-Excuse Absentee Voting, expanded Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) beyond the Dep’t. of Motor Vehicles to other state agencies, restored the right to vote to citizens on parole, made permanent the 2020 absentee ballot drop boxes and more!
