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.
At Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board voted 9-1 to ask Governor Northam to remove the witness signature requirement for absentee ballots in Fairfax County because our residents may not be able to get signatures due to COVID concerns. The General Assembly removed the witness signature requirement during the 2020 elections while we were under a State of Emergency. It was reinstated once the State of Emergency ended in the Commonwealth.

Clay Percle, who leads the Fairfax GOP’s Election Integrity Team, joined WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall radio program to discuss last weekend’s disenfranchisement of many Republican voters. With registration deadlines looming for Virginia’s GOP convention, the Department of Elections closed its online Citizens Portal for “scheduled maintenance.” In addition to GOP conventions in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, registrations for local elections in Vienna were similarly affected.
The Virginia Department of Elections scheduled a critical system outage that disenfranchised Fairfax County Republican voters over the weekend, as key registration deadlines approached. While it remains unclear whether this outage was due to mismanagement or impropriety, voters deserve answers.

In early March, the Virginia Department of Elections (VA ELECT) announced they had successfully completed a Risk-Limiting Audit (RLA) of the Commonwealth’s November 3, 2020 presidential election results.
According to VA ELECT, the audit verified the Commonwealth’s original vote count, accurately portraying the winners of the election in Virginia for United States President and Senate.
