With the municipal elections rapidly approaching, Hartford Lawmakers are dictating new election
laws without the funding to ensure they can be implemented effectively. This is like someone
“writing checks with no money in the account”. Using the worn-out COVID related excuses for
increasing mail in voting, their recommendations fall on our election officials in our 169 towns
and cities, who are already short on resources and budget, budgets that were locked in the
spring. Most towns do not have the personnel or funds to process abnormally higher levels of
requests for absentee ballot applications.
