Senator Matt Lesser Releases Statement Following Democrats Plans for Covid-safe Voting in 2022 General Election

Today, State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown), Chair of the Insurance & Real Estate Committee, is releasing a statement after Democrats announced their plans for COVID-safe voting in 2022. Today, plans were announced to pass legislation within the next several weeks to continue to allow voting by absentee ballot through the 2022 general election.

“I’m thrilled Senate Democrats are leading on this issue,” said Sen. Matt Lesser. “Nobody should have to choose between their health or their family’s health and their right to vote.”

Senator Lesser also mentioned it as a major concern while participating in a public hearing on the Governor’s Emergency Powers yesterday.
