On October 7, 2020, the Federalist Society's Connecticut Lawyers Chapter hosted a webinar panel on "Absentee Balloting in Connecticut."

For the November 3, 2020 election, the state legislature passed Public Act 20-03 July Special Session, allowing, in light of the coronavirus, all voters to vote by absentee ballot if they so choose. Our panelists will discuss the law surrounding absentee balloting, recent political and legal developments with respect thereto, and practical considerations when implementing "no excuse" absentee balloting in Connecticut, including lessons learned from this August's primary election.
