Official Ballot Boxes outside West Hartford Town Hall.

More than a third of Connecticut votes cast in the November 2020 election were by absentee ballot.  Will ballot drop boxes and mail-in options become permanent? Today, we talk with Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill about the future of voting in Connecticut.

And later: President Biden has been in office for less than a month. But he’s already setting records with his use of executive orders. We hear from a law professor about what this use of executive power means for the country.

GUESTS:

  • Denise Merrill - Connecticut Secretary of the State
  • Kelly Moore- Policy Counsel at the ACLU of Connecticut
  • Cristina Rodriguez - Professor at Yale Law School
