Comments

Sue Mosher writes:

For many young people, their college or university ID is the key piece of identification in their lives. Right now, a young Virginian going to college in VA can use their ID to vote but their sibling attending a Maryland university would not be able to use that ID to vote at their Virginia polling place. I support this bill because it would encourage young people to stay engaged with their domicile communities.
