The League of Women Voters of Connecticut believes that the political process must be open to all citizens and that the right to vote with confidence in the election process and with adequate information with which to make informed decisions must be guaranteed for all.
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.
The League of Women Voters of Connecticut supports a campaign finance system that ensures the public's right to know, combats corruption and undue influence, and enables candidates to compete more equitably for public office.
Open Government & Ethics
The League of Women Voters of Connecticut supports government officials and employees being held accountable for carrying out their duties in an effective and ethically-responsible manner.
