Many Connecticut voters — well, all those who don’t think Andrew Cuomo is their governor — are focused on the gubernatorial race between Dan Malloy and Tom Foley.
Some know that state legislature seats are up for grabs on Tuesday too.
Very, very few folks — myself included — had any idea that a ballot initiative could change the Connecticut constitution. If passed, legislators and the governor could change how and when we vote.
Alert “06880” reader Bart Shuldman passed along a message from Toni Boucher. She notes that right now, absentee ballots can be used only by people who will be out of town, are on active military duty, are sick or physically disabled, or cannot vote on Election Day for religious reasons.
A “yes” vote could lead to broader absentee balloting, multiple voting days at polls, voting by mail and online voting.
A “no” vote would keep the rules as they are.
You’ll have the opportunity to vote on this ballot initiative on Tuesday. Even though you haven’t seen any lawn signs, for or against.
