Beginning on Friday morning, Virginians were able to cast their vote for President, Congress, and the redistricting amendment. New laws signed this year allow all Virginians to vote absentee by mail, in person at their local registrar’s office, or at satellite locations with no excuse necessary.
“Virginians can be confident their vote is secure and will be counted,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “While the pandemic has made this an unprecedented election year, Virginia voters have several safe and easy ways to exercise their constitutional right to vote. Voting is an essential part of our democracy, and I encourage every Virginia voter to know their options and make a plan for safely casting their ballot.”
Voting starts in Virginia TODAY, and we are going to WIN. You have a crazy Governor who wants to take away your guns, which he will do without me in office. He is in favor of executing babies after birth – this isn’t late-term abortion, this is a step way beyond! Vote for me…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 18, 2020
Just officially cast my ballot for the 2020 election down at the @AlbemarleCounty Registrar’s Office. It was safe, socially distanced, & surreal watching my ballot go into the machine!— Dr. Cameron Webb (@DrCameronWebb) September 18, 2020
So, it’s time to get out the vote! Tell your family, friends, neighbors & coworkers. Let’s go! pic.twitter.com/8X3nBYNd1H
