Virginia makes election day a holiday in wave of new voting rights laws

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced Sunday that he signed a series of new measures into law aimed at expanding access to voting, including making Election Day a state holiday. In addition, Northam signed expansion of early voting to be allowed 45 days before an election without a stated reason, repeal of Virginia’s strict voter ID law and adoption of automatic voter registration.

I have always said voting day should be a paid holiday. But you can rest assured if this snake in the grass wants it he has a plan to violate other rights using this as a cover. If civil war breaks out he will not last 3 days.

Making Election Day a holiday is a good idea. Now it should be implemented federally across all 50 states.

If you claim you can't vote on election day because of work, you're an idiot.
