On the Ballot
Early Voting Ballot Question
There will be a proposed constitutional amendment on Early Voting.
The question will read:
“Shall the Constitution of the State be amended to permit the General Assembly to provide for early voting?”
We recommend voting YES on the Early Voting question.
Here is a detailed explanation of the Early Voting Ballot Question:
Ledyard will also see this question:
'Shall the sale of recreational marijuana be allowed in the Town of Ledyard?'
After careful deliberation, the Ledyard Democratic Town Committee (DTC) has decided to support this referendum and encourage voters to vote 'Yes'.
Our support is driven by the following considerations:
1. Other towns around Ledyard will certainly allow the sale of cannabis. If we do not allow its sale in Ledyard, neighboring towns will benefit from the extra revenue while we miss out.
Although the town's available uses of the 3% sales tax are limited in scope,
it is a badly-needed diversification of the town's tax base.
2. Even for those of us who won't be shopping there ourselves, many feel that it's wrong to deny others the choice to do so.
