Connecticut League of Conservation Voters 2023 Scorecard

On October 25, 2023 the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters (CTLCV) announced the release of its 2023 Environmental Scorecard, a powerful tool that holds state lawmakers accountable for their environmental policy decisions. CTLCV publishes the annual Environmental Scorecard to let voters know what kind of actions their state representatives and senators take – or do not take – to protect the environment. This is the first year that CTLCV has included a separate Democracy Score as well as the legislator’s Environmental Score.

Press Mention

Gov. Ned Lamont said Wednesday that the State Bond Commission will vote next month to spend $25 million on new voting machines that are expected to be in place by the presidential election next year. Following Wednesday's announcement, Ann Reed, vice president for advocacy at the League of Women Voters, said the group was "thrilled" that the state would be getting new voting machines. "Old voting machines can sabotage an election, and we want to maintain Connecticut's dominance in pushing voting for everyone and making it safe and secure," she said.
