Voting is fundamental right

To the Editor:

This Nov. 4, the voters of our state will have the chance to ratify a Constitutional amendment, already passed by the General Assembly, that would allow for voters to partake in early voting.

I’m sure most of us could think of a plethora of reasons why one would want to vote early.

We have a very sizable commuter population in our town, and often those folks who commute to the city are gone most of election day, if not the whole day. Why not afford them the opportunity to vote at a more convenient time? What about other individuals who work all day long in state? Should they not have access to easy, convenient voting?

The answer, according to the votes of state Reps. Brenda Kupchick and Tony Hwang, appears to be no. Those voters don’t deserve the chance to vote early.

Voting is a sacred civic responsibility, and the most fundamental right that we enjoy as Americans. Why not expand that right, make it easier and more convenient for our residents to exercise?

I encourage state Rep. Brenda Kupchick, as well as state Rep. Tony Hwang, to explain to their constituents why expanding voting possibilities is not a priority for them.

And for the rest of my fellow Fairfielders, I encourage you to vote for the Constitutional amendment that would expand voting options for all Nutmeggers.
