State Senator Mae Flexer
As our State Senator, Mae Flexer has been a strong independent voice for working families and small businesses in Northeastern Connecticut. Dedicated to giving back to her community, she stands up and fights for us, no matter the opponent.
Mae is committed to fighting the extremism and partisanship plaguing politics. She has taken on powerful special interests and even members of her own party, like Governor Lamont, to protect Connecticut’s Medicare Savings Program and secure essential funding for our towns.
We can count on Mae Flexer to continue fighting for us.
Last month, my colleagues and I approved legislation expanding access to absentee ballots for the 2020 general election.
Here’s how it works:
- You should have already received an application for an absentee ballot in the mail.
- You can fill it out & check the box noting the threat of COVID-19.
- Mail the application back to your town hall or drop it off at a secure ballot box outside of your town hall.
- Starting October 2nd, absentee ballots will be mailed out to those who requested one.
- After filling it out, you can mail it back to your town hall. If you send it back through mail, the Secretary of State’s website has a feature to confirm that your ballot was received.
- If you’re worried about delays in the postal service, you can also drop it off at your town hall’s secure ballot box.
- As always, if you would like to vote in person, you can! Local polling locations will be open on Election Day from 6 am-8 pm. Remember to mask up and stay 6 feet apart from others.
Some tips to avoid any inadvertent mistakes:
- Even if you mean well, please do not assist anyone outside your family with an application or ballot.
- Only immediate family members or health care providers can assist with voting. They must be listed as “designees”.
- Only the voter or designee can drop off the ballot in the ballot.
