Scott Signs Universal Mail-In Voting Bill, Urges Legislature to Expand It
June 7, 2021 at 5:57PM
The bill, S.15, will require town clerks to mail ballots to all active, registered voters ahead of the biannual statewide elections. Voters could then mail their ballots, deliver them to the polls or vote in person. The state used the same system for last year's record-breaking presidential election, which resulted in a 74 percent voter participation rate, six points higher than the 2016 presidential election.
