Join The Fight to Keep Voting in Virginia Hassle-Free
More tricks from the General Assembly
Despite having previously voted on which photo IDs people will be able to use when they vote, the State Board of Elections is reconsidering the regulations due to pressure from State Senator Mark Obenshain.
Up for consideration is whether or not expired IDs should be acceptable for voting. The expiration date of an ID card has no bearing on whether an individual is who they say they are. In fact, several acceptable photo IDs have no expiration date, including the one you can get from your local registrar!
Changing the rules now will result in confusion and leave us with too little time to educate voters before the November elections. Read more about our take in an op-ed written by Tram and published in The Virginian-Pilot.
Voting is the one time we are all equal – it is up to us to make sure Virginia lives up to that promise. Will you join us in telling the State Board of Elections to reject any new changes to the existing rules?
