Act Today On Key Election Integrity Bills!

Election Integrity Button

Fairfax GOP Election Integrity Team

The deadline for “cross-over”, when bills that pass either the House or Senate “cross over” to the other chamber for a vote, is Tuesday, February 13.  Currently, there are 17 Democrat-sponsored bills (9 in the House and 8 in the Senate) that will damage election integrity in Virginia. Republican legislators MUST VOTE “NO” on these bills!

The bad news is that given the Democrat majority in both chambers, most if not all, bills will pass.  However, the good news is that IF the Republican legislators vote NO on these bills, they’ll send a clear message to Governor Youngkin to veto every single one of them. The Democrats don’t have the votes to override the Governor’s veto.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
To keep Virginia’s election laws from weakening, every Republican legislator needs to hold the line! Your emails and/or phone calls are vital.  Please contact your Republican legislators this week, as soon as possible. After cross-over, the Members of the House of Delegates will be voting on the bills that have passed the Senate, and the Senators will be voting on the bills that have passed the House.

Here are some templates for you to use, along with links to files with contact info for each Senator and Delegate, and links to each of these bad Democrat-sponsored bills.
