Filing for State offices, including House of Representative and statewide offices, will begin on February 27, 2018 at the Secretary of State’s Office in Jefferson City.

(Depending on location, other offices may be available now or in the future.  This could be a city council position, mayor, school board, hospital board, etc. Contact the local government for details.)

Automatic Voter Registration Act (Proposed)

Automatic Voter Registration Act
(Proposed)

A message from LWVUS:

Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Representative Robert Brady (D-PA) introduced the Automatic Voter Registration Act of 2017 on June 14, 2017. The League  is proud to support legislation that enhances  access for eligible voters in our elections and works to modernize our electoral system. This bill will improve the  accuracy of voter records, cut down on costs, modernize outdated registration systems while supporting implementation in states across the country.

The League is a leader in voter registration efforts across the country. Expanding voter registration has been a principal goal of the League since its founding in the wake of the passage in 1920 of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.   We are proud to see Congress embracing new technology that expands access to the ballot while still taking the necessary safeguards to secure personal information.

The League fully supports this bill and urges all members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to support this important legislation.

Contact our U.S. House Member and Senator about this.
