Americans have a superpower: voting. Democracy’s most constructive mechanism for self-improvement, voting is every citizen’s right, privilege, and civic duty. So how can we make sure we vote safely during COVID-19?

Join us for the virtual discussion on Thursday, September 10 from 7 to 8 p.m. Registration is required.

Secretary of the State Merrill will walk us through the processes for both absentee and in-person voting, addressing our confusion and concern regarding health risks as well as election integrity. There will be time for Q&A at the end.

As Connecticut’s chief elections official, Denise Merrill has focused on modernizing Connecticut’s elections. Secretary Merrill has supported and expanded democratic participation, ensuring that every citizen’s rights and privileges are protected and that every vote is counted accurately.

She has worked to expand voter participation through Election Day and online voter registration. She has also improved Connecticut’s democratic accountability and integrity with a series of rapid response processes to Election Day problems.

This program is co-sponsored by the Leagues of Women Voters of New Canaan and Darien, and by the Darien Library. The program is free and open to the public. Please join us and don’t forget to vote on Nov. 3.
