We work to modernize our voting systems, streamline the voting process, promote transparent and accountable redistricting and make it easier for all eligible citizens to become active participants in our electoral process. To improve citizens' voting experience, the League supports efforts to establish permanent and portable statewide voter registration, expand early voting, improve polling place management, provide online voter registration and implement electronic streamlining. We also work to ensure compliance with laws like The Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA), The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), and the recently introduced Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2015.
Reforming how our elections are conducted is another area of interest for LWV Minnesota. We look closely at all election laws and through the years have offered recommendations for national and state reform. In 2010, local League members joined to study and prepare a briefing paper on the problems that arose in 2008 and identify areas of legislative initiatives for reform.
