Senate Approves Constitutional Amendment for No-Excuse Absentee Voting

Hartford Courant — In a move to follow 35 other states, Connecticut senators voted overwhelmingly Tuesday night for a constitutional amendment to allow absentee voting for any reason in all elections.

After debating for about 90 minutes, the Senate voted 26-8 on a bipartisan basis as three Republicans joined with 23 Democrats in favor of the resolution. All eight negative votes were by Republicans.

The resolution will allow voters to vote with any excuse to obtain an absentee ballot.
