In the past, I have always voted on Election Day. This year is different; I voted early for the following reasons: (1) Voting early reduces the amount of phone calls and mailers you receive as campaigns take you off of their lists once you have voted – it also saves them money; (2) Eliminates the worry that a family/business or medical emergency might happen on Election Day; (3) Reduces opportunity for voter fraud by removing your name from voter rolls as a picture ID is no longer required to vote; (4) But most importantly – it is critical that we end one-party rule in Richmond.

The Republican State Leadership Committee released a new, hard-hitting ad this week, blasting Hala Ayala’s weakness and touting the resolve of Winsome Sears. “These days, we need a strong leader who runs into the fight — that was Winsome Sears, when she joined the Marines, and built a business,” the ad says. “Politician Hala Ayala?
