Legislative Envoy

Last year the state League established the legislative envoy program. Each local League was encouraged to have one or more persons designated to be contacts with our state legislators on state legislation. The envoy’s job is to establish contacts with our state legislators to advise them of League positions on issues coming before the state legislature. For example, in May the envoys are asked to contact their League’s legislators about the Election Day Registration (EDR), legislation that the state League supports. This bill would allow voters who have moved, have errors or have never been registered, to do so on election day and be allowed to vote after registering.
