Please note that the described solicitation is from a third party and is NOT an official notice from the Secretary of the State. The solicitation seeks to provide services, for a fee, that are not required services relating to the Office of the Secretary of the State.

Those notices will have the Official Seal of the Secretary of the State affixed to them, along with a direct link (or reference) to the official Secretary of the State’s filing web address: www.concord-sots.ct.gov.
