Connecticut needs voting reforms

Connecticut has some of the most restrictive voting laws in the nation built into its Constitution. These restrict people to a single day of voting (the first Tuesday in November) and limit use of the absentee ballot option to people who are ill or out of town for work  Few people can plan an illness and not everyone knows when they will be out of town for work.
