“In 2019,” said Rapini, “I took a deep interest in Connecticut elections. I have since become an election official in order to understand mechanics of our elections and to better prepare me to take our elections to next level of Innovation, trust and fairness.  I was impressed to see the thoughtful work done by our Registrars and Clerks in securing the integrity of our elections but I also saw so much opportunity for improvement.  So here I am today, coming off the sidelines, willing to bring to bear my three decades of business and technology experience from Silicon Valley and apply my life learnings to strengthen the tools needed for strong elections.
As Secretary of the State, I will replace our aging ballot scanners with the next generation of technology based on paper ballots and disconnected from the internet. I will build an online tool for voters to apply for absentee ballots using their phone or computer without the need for a printer, but with the requirement of a Social Security number and/or Connecticut driver’s license info. My office will increase access to the ballot while adding common sense security.
“Our business community will find me a credible champion for all businesses, big and small. I will give Connecticut businesses BTB marketing tools, improved customer service and an ongoing commitment to listen to their needs.”
