Gina Raimondo on Government Reform



Rhode Island Supreme Court now multiracial, majority female

These principles have guided our determination to appoint judges who look like the people they serve. I'm proud to have appointed highly-qualified, talented judges at every level of our court system, including the most diverse group of judges in state history. And, for the first time ever, the Rhode Island Supreme Court is now multi-racial and majority-female.

Made RI ninth state to enact automatic voter registration

Rhode Island has become the ninth state in the country to authorize automatic voter registration. Raimondo signed a bill that automatically registers eligible citizens to vote when they interact with the Division of Motor Vehicles unless they decline. Automatic voter registration is a bipartisan approach to registering eligible voters that will save money and increase accuracy of the rolls and voter participation. It passed with overwhelming support from both chambers in the Legislature.
