Voter Registration and Absentee Voting

There should be no attempt by partisians to limit, restrict or deny any citizen their voting rights whether at the poll or by absentee voting.  If it can be shown that one party (in this case, the Republican Party of Virginia) is trying to influence the voting rights of constituents of the opposing party, then there will be a challenge in court.  I remiind you that any type of vote rigging, whether subtle or blatent, is illegal.

If something as simple as a sloppy signature is used by Republicans against a Democratic voter to disqualify that voter, that case will be pursed to the Supreme Court if necessary.  Vote manipulation will not be tolerated.

It appears that abuse of office and abuse of power by the Virginia Republican Party and the Attorney General of Virginia is taking place.  Acts of this nature are unconstitutional and will be treated as such.
