(A) allows voters to propose and pass laws, as well as to repeal them
Does "them" have clear reference?

(B) allows voters to propose, pass, and to repeal laws
the second "to" needs to be dropped.

(C) allows voters to propose, to pass, and repeal laws
the second "to" needs to be dropped.

(D) will allow the voter to propose, pass, as well as to repeal laws
Voter needs to be plaural (which voter?). Also future tense may not be necessary.

(E) will allow laws to be proposed, passed, as well as repealed by voters
Seems ok. Again not sure about the future tense. However passive.

I first chose (A), on a second thought, maybe (E) is better.

What is the OA? As well as to repeal them in (A) doesn't seem right.

(A) allows voters to propose and pass laws, as well as to repeal them
perfect for me. there are two things:
1. ...to propose and pass laws
2. ...to repeal them (the laws).

Repeal means to abrogate, or to annul. Clearly, the voters cannot repeal themselves, so the pronoun usage, 'them', in this context has a clearly defined antecendent, LAWS.
(B) allows voters to propose, pass, and to repeal laws
it should rather read...'to propose, to pass, and to repeal.' 'to' is missing (parallelism).
(C) allows voters to propose, to pass, and repeal laws
(same reason as B)
(D) will allow the voter to propose, pass, as well as to repeal laws
(same again)
(E) will allow laws to be proposed, passed, as well as repealed by voters
(this is just way out)

OK, this is what bother me.

According to (A), there is two seperate seriesin the list : First is "propose" and "pass", second is "repeal". But how do we know if "propose" and "pass" is in one series itself?

(E) shows that "propose" and "pass" and "repeal" in the same series, and they are equally weighted.

In my opinion, "propose and pass" lead to the law being passed, whereas "repeal" leads to the law being withdrawn, hence their usage in different series.
