The League of Women Voters of CT, a nonpartisan national organization with 1800 Connecticut members, is pleased to have taken part in the Elections Performance Task Force convened last year by Secretary Merrill.
Rarely, if ever, has our state gathered together such a committed group of local elections officials, voters rights advocates, academic experts, and state agency representatives whose task was to take a comprehensive look at Connecticut’s elections—all the way from the registration process, to Election Day procedures, and on to evaluation of our system’s effectiveness in engaging our voters in their democracy.
All of our meetings were broadcast on CT-N for all state residents to view—with accompanying information also posted on the Secretary of the State’s website and all meetings open to the public, of course.
The League of Women Voters of Connecticut applauds the openness and inclusiveness of this effort and hope that our legislators and our voters will take the time to consider the task force’s report.
The task force report is available online here.
