In just 4 short days, our country will elect the next leaders of our nation. Are you ready to head to the polls?
Virginia Organizing has been sending out information for weeks now on what types of ID you need to bring with you in order for your vote to count. You can still access this information by clicking here.
Election Day is special to me. It's special because it's the one day where every American should have an equal voice. No one vote counts more than another based on your income, your race, your social status, or any other factor. Every single vote holds the same equal weight. I don't know of any other day of the year when everyone has an equal say in our governance.
There have been attempts to silence certain minority voices, especially in Virginia's history. Today, we have voter ID laws that threaten to disenfranchise thousands of voters, but we will not be silenced! We will vote!
No matter what happens at the polls on Tuesday, you count and your vote counts!
See you at the polls,
Sandra A. Cook, Chairperson
