Voting By Mail? In May Election? Future Elections?
As you may know, the LWV-VA is a plaintiff in a lawsuit relating to the witness requirement in Virginia for absentee ballots. Are you concerned about trying to find a witness for the November 3 elections if you cast an absentee ballot by mail? Did finding a witness for the May 19 election pose a challenge? Please share your concerns regarding the November election or your experience in the May election by contacting Deb Wake.
