 Contact Your Representatives   l   Connecticut's Political Parties


Laura Smits, Voters' Services for the CT League and former Norwalk Registrar, explains why voting in Connecticut IS secure.  The CT Constitution and State Law provide guidance for local Registrars, and they are followed meticulously. 

Is it possible for mistakes to be made here and there? Undoubtedly.
This presentation will help explain why manipulation of the voting process to change the result is difficult, if not impossible.   

Absentee Ballot Information

Absentee Ballot Process

To qualify for voting absentee in Connecticut, the CT Constitution requires that citizens have a reason they are unable to vote in person.  These reasons may include that:

they are in active service in the U.S. armed forces; or
they are absent from town during all the hours of voting on election day; or
they are ill; or
they have physical disability; or
his or her religion forbids secular activity on election day; or
his or her required performance of duties as a primary, referendum, or election official at a polling place other than his or her own during all the hours on that day.

Permission to vote absentee due to COVID in 2021 has been granted by the state legislature. 

For more information on absentee voting in 2021, contact the Secretary of State.
