My opponent believes that voting should be hard and people’s voting rights shouldn’t be given to them on a silver platter – words she used last year at the legislature. I disagree.
The pandemic has highlighted the need for flexible voting options including no-excuse absentee vote by mail options. Republicans continue to fight against these initiatives and claim voting fraud when almost none actually exists. Almost unbelievably, local Republican legislators are suing the State of Connecticut with a goal to reduce safe absentee and mail-in voting methods.
I would like you to be able to access your fundamental right to vote in our American democracy in a secure way that keeps you safe and lets your voice be heard. Increased voting options will keep our citizens and our democracy safe.
