It is well known that a measurable homomorphism from a locally compact group $G$ to a topological group $Y$ must be continuous if $Y$ is either separable or $\sigma$-compact. In this work it is shown that the above requirement on $Y$ can be somewhat relaxed and it is shown inter alia that a measurable homomorphism from a locally compact group to a locally compact abelian group will always be continuous. In addition, it is shown that if $H$ is a nonopen subgroup of a locally compact group, then under a variety of circumstances, some union of cosets of $H$ must fail to be measurable.
