Voting and Elections with Secretary of State Denise Merrill
Thursday, April 29, 2021
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Sponsored by the Leagues of Women Voters of Darien and New Canaan, with Darien Library.
The 2020 elections may be over, but our questions about voting aren’t. Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill provides a detailed explanation of how our state facilitates voter access and protects election integrity—before and during the Covid-19 pandemic. What are the reasons for our existing rules? How did we manage the increase in absentee ballots in our last election? Why should voters trust our system? Secretary Merrill will take us through the different processes, and close with an update on two proposed joint resolutions under consideration in our Legislature that seek to permanently expand access to voting in Connecticut.
