The League of Women Voters MN has testified, urging our state legislature to act quickly to provide resources and policy responses to protect the vote of every Minnesota voter. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they urge the legislature to take legislative action to protect Minnesotans and our election process. They emphasize that legislative action should enable three goals:
- Maximize our existing voting processes to minimize spread of the disease;
- Fortify polling places from spread of the disease during the voting process; and
- Invest in resources so election officials can serve voters sufficiently.
