RICHMOND, Va. (ABC7) Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Sunday that he has signed new legislation that expands access to voting in the Commonwealth.
The new bill repeals Virginia's voter identification law, makes Election Day a state holiday, and expands access to early voting, according to a release from the office of Gov. Northam.
Early voting will be allowed 45 days before an election without a stated excuse. The Commonwealth currently requires voters who want to vote absentee provide the state with a reason from an approved list, why they are unable to vote on Election Day.
Voters will no longer be required to show a photo ID before they vote.

45 days of early voting will make it MUCH easier for the dead to vote.
Wow...no Voter ID???
Let’s load up buses from all over the country and go vote in Virginia!!! Make this work against the communists.
“The new bill repeals Virginia’s voter identification law,”
And there it is.
I have yet to see the Dems find even one person who couldn’t vote, who was legally allowed to, because of said law.
And you are automatically registered to vote when you get a drivers license.
makes Election Day a state holiday, and expands access to early voting
If you have access to early voting... then why do you need election day off?
Governor Blackface is a total POS.
Northam deserves to be hanged by his heels. Do it in Richmond, above the capitol steps.
He has become a dictator, impervious to law or the people of Virginia.
The Civil War that Northam wants will start in VA.!
State holiday. Meaning only State and municipal employees. 90% Democrat voting block gets the day off while the serfs work to pay for them.
The only reason to eliminate voter ID, which we have had for years, is to facilitate vote fraud.
Citizens don’t need a holiday to vote.
In less than 3 months my beloved Virginia has become Cuba
Great observation. They just haven't seized all the wealth and all sources of working families' wealth.
But they will. Blink of an eye.
Virginia is lost for decades!
This is what will happen when Democrats take all branches of state government in ANY state.
The Commonwealth of Virginia is a loss cause. The only viable solution is to get a Republican congress and have Trump radically cut the Federal government, thus forcing a mass exodus of unemployed Rats from NoVA.
Re: Mass exodus of federal govt workers from northern Virginia
Yes, that would work!
look people...VOTE pubs....do not vote libtard and do not NOT vote just because you hate the pub....
the rats are cementing their forever control over everything....
swallow hard, vote pub.....
#16. Many federal employees leaving govt work will go to work for Amazon/Bezos, Soros front operations, Tom Steyer’s leftist environmental extremist groups, or form their own consulting/contracting organizations and be back in business again.
Northam is not only a Marxist bastard, but also a doctor who advocates killing babies. Where I come from, he is called “Dr. Gosnell-Mengele”. Pass it on.
Lt. Gov. Fairfax - alleged double rapist. What’s good for Weinstein and Matt Lauer should be good for Fairfax.
State’s AG Mark Herring - more like a “Red Herring” with an emphasis on the “RED” as in Marxist. He is a powermonger seeking to become the governor some day. He is more dangerous than Northam and that takes some doing.
Posing a legal question: Can a private citizen take photos of cars parking at voting sites and run a check against DMV address registrations for the driver(s) to see if they actually live in Virginia? If the driver does live in Virginia (legally or perhaps illegally), it will be hard to do anything about them, but what about their passengers?
Where a bunch of illegals live in an apartment or home owned or rented by a legal person, it will now be almost impossible to check their legal status thanks to Comrade Northam. With our present system of voting registration, you sign up, present the required legal documents, get a voter registration card, and show them when you vote.
Tomorrow it will all change. Aren’t Democrat Party dictatorships great?
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is ignorant.
In the late 1800’s voting was placed on Tuesdays 100 during the work week after voting on weekends involved candidates taking voters to the bar before taking voters to the ballot box.
The is why the Right has to win elections every time, and the Left has to win once.
