Americans have a superpower: voting. Democracy’s most constructive mechanism for self-improvement, voting is every citizen’s right, privilege, and civic duty. So how can we make sure we vote safely during Covid-19?

Join us for a virtual discussion with Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill who will walk us through the processes for both absentee and in-person voting, addressing our confusion and concern regarding health risks as well as election integrity. There will be time for Q&A at the end.
