Merrill seeks constitutional amendment to allow early voting

Doug Chapin advises Connecticut's Secretary of State about the advantages of allowing early voting in elections.

"This notion of voters coming in to one place on one day and dropping ballots into one box, either real or imagined, is very much a thing of the past," he said. "We need to make sure that our laws either explicitly account for the new developments in the field or are sufficiently flexible so that the people who know how those procedures can work without the black letter of the law."
