Early voting is just like voting on Election Day. Early voters scan their completed ballot just after privately marking it. 
Early voting results are counted, tabulated and included in the election night (unofficial results) totals.
If you’re looking to vote early, below is all the information you need to vote in your state:

CONNECTICUT

Connecticut does not offer in-person early voting before Election Day.
However, you may be eligible to vote with an absentee ballot. Certain kinds of registered voters can request an absentee ballot, including those who cannot appear at their assigned polling place on Election Day due to absence, sickness or physical disability. 
Find the eligibility requirements for absentee voting, and contact your Town Clerk to check if you can visit their office to request and return an absentee ballot in person.

This Election Day, Connecticut voters will see a question on their ballot asking them to approve a change to the state constitution which would allow for early voting.
