The League of Women Voters grew out of 80 years of protest over women not being allowed to vote and the League of Women Voters continues to believe that voting is a fundamental citizen right that must be guaranteed. Since 1919, LWV Minnesota has been advocating for voting rights for all citizens.

Secretary of State Steve Simon as well as the other forum speakers said the President’s Advisory Committee on Election Integrity’s claim that three to five million people voted illegally last November, is without any foundation or basis.Kathy Tomsich said, “I think voter rights are under attack right now, There are legislative bills that have not ever passed, but keep coming up over and over again like a measure that would allow private voter information to become public.”
