Virginia Governor to Propose Campaign Finance and Voter ID Law Changes
Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced he will send the General Assembly a package of proposals aimed at campaign finance and voter law reforms.
The campaign finance proposal will seek to ban the personal use of campaign funds and he would like to see the new voter photo identification law repealed.
Another proposal would expand absentee voting, permitting any registered voter in Virginia to vote absentee in-person starting 21 days before the election. The General Assembly convenes today to begin the 2017 session.
