Republicans controls the house of delegates Majority after picking up seven seats in the November election; simply because, too many Democrats stayed home, and their vote counted, but not for Democrats. The same is true for when Republicans stay home, their voices count, but, not for Republicans. My point is, GMW when you donâ€™t allow your vote to speak for what you believe, then youâ€™re giving someone that privilege.
So, GMW, even if you canâ€™t vote in HD 89th, You can still support Jackie Glass with your dollars and whatever help is needed in securing HD89th.
To all Virginians in particular and Americans in general. As stated by: Cecilia Aguilera, an attorney with the Fair Elections Center, a nonpartisan voting rights and electoral reform organization in Washington, D.C. Â© 2021 Virginian-Pilot.
While several Republican-led state legislatures spent their 2021 sessions trying to make it harder to vote, Virginiaâ€™s Democratic-led General Assembly took the opposite approach. Since 2020, it has modernized the commonwealthâ€™s election code to facilitate voting, including by establishing no-excuse early and mail voting. As a result, six times as many Virginians voted early in this yearâ€™s general election than in 2017.
Overall, more voters participated than in 2017, and while many factors can influence turnout, two things are clear: Virginia voters have embraced recent election law changes, and the changes did not disadvantage Republican candidates.
No Democratic leaders were chanting, â€œVoter Fraud in the November 2, 2021, general election, where the Democrats lost the governorship, Attorney General, and a majority in the House of delegates. We believe democracy worked, and It was simply the voters choice. More Republicans than Democrats went to the polls.
To all Registered Voters in the HD 89th Special Election Jan. 11, 2022, the winner will be determined by the Party that gets their voters to the polls. So Democrats if we wish to hold the 89th, then we have to fight for it, with our platform of addressing the constituents needs, and not attacking the candidates personality or record. We want results. Which will get our people to the polls.
