Comments

ACLU-VA Voting Rights, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

The ACLU of Virginia cannot support legislation that seeks to add new classes of privileged voters to our excused-based absentee voting system. The ACLU of Virginia supports legislation that will allow every voter to choose to vote absentee in person or by mail without having to offer an excuse.
