LWVCT ADVOCACY 2019
GENERAL ASSEMBLY SESSION 2019
LWVCT 2019 Legislative Priorities are: Election Laws; Campaign Finance and Open Government and Ethics, including citizens' right to know and public access to government information.
In order to get early voting, a constitutional amendment must be proposed and approved by the General Assembly before it can go to the voters. We would like to see it on the 2020 ballot and to achieve this goal, it will take 75% approval by our state representatives. It is not too early to start promoting early voting with your legislators and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
For Details on Early Voting: Early Voting Background Information
