Virginia's excuse-based voting system is inherently unfair and intrudes on voters' privacy. All registered voters deserve an equal opportunity to cast their ballot free from excuses, no matter where they live, who they are or what type of job they have.
True no-excuse absentee voting increases voter turnout and makes it easier for people to participate in our democracy. The existing limits on absentee voting disproportionately affect voters in rural areas and voters with lower incomes. It's important that the Virginia General Assembly pass a law that allows all Virginia voters to vote absentee both in person or by mail without having to offer an excuse or provide personal information.
