The ACLU of Connecticut takes an active role in every session of the state legislature to support bills that advance civil liberties and oppose those that do not. We have testified before the legislature hundreds of times and have taken leading roles in the struggles to repeal the death penalty, fight racial profiling, reform police practices, decriminalize marijuana, protect LGBT rights, and prevent encroachment on the right to free speech.

S.J.R. 15, A Resolution Proposing an Amendment to the State Constitution to Permit Early Voting; H.B. 5277, An Act Decreasing Fees for Copying Public Records under the Freedom of Information Act; H.B. 5278, An Act Revising Certain Absentee Voting Statutes

Senate Joint Resolution 15, A Resolution Proposing an Amendment to the State Constitution to Permit Early Voting, would strengthen our democracy and our state. Archaic language in the Connecticut Constitution prohibits early voting in our state and impedes access to voting by everyone.
