Connecticut Legislature Adjourns Without Passing Any Election Law Bills

The Connecticut legislature adjourned on June 7. It did not pass any of the 57 bills that would have amended an election law. Among the measures that failed were those concerning ranked choice voting, disclosure of income tax returns for presidential candidates, adoption of the National Popular Vote Compact, and proposed amendments to the state constitution to permit early voting.

The legislature didn’t even pass HB 7163, which would have repealed the ban on out-of-state circulators. The Libertarian Party won a lawsuit against that law last year, so out-of-state circulators may work in Connecticut. But the statute will continue to say such petitioners are not permitted.
