Virginia Civic Engagement Table We connect and strengthen Virginia's progressive non-profit organizations. https://linktr.ee/vcetlin
(12)

The Virginia Civic Engagement Table strengthens and connects Virginia's progressive nonprofit organizations and activists and acts as a hub for the larger progressive community. We believe our Commonwealth works best when every voice is heard. We are a coalition of over 35 partner organizations who have long histories of civic activism in Virginia. Some of our partners work on policy development,

some on issue advocacy, some on grassroots organizing. All are committed to improving the common good by pursuing an integrated communications and civic engagement strategy. As charitable organizations, the groups do not intervene in elections to support or oppose candidates or political parties. Instead, they seek to strengthen Virginia's civic institutions by educating the public about important issues facing their communities, conducting non partisan voter registration drives and carrying out nonpartisan Get-Out-The-Vote efforts geared to underrepresented populations.

Today, we stood beside our partners + allies to demand justice for returning Virginians whose voting rights, after being rightfully restored, have been inexplicably stripped away by Gov. Youngkin's Administration.

Thank you especially to Nolef Turns Inc. + ACLU of Virginia for leading this rally!

The improper voter purge of thousands from the rolls is a “direct attempt to blatantly disenfranchise voters,” said Nick Gothard, VCET Election Protection Manager.

“These incidents, occurring in such close proximity to election day, raise serious questions about ongoing voter suppression tactics and efforts to subvert public trust in Virginia’s secure and fair elections.”

More on the growing calls for a DOJ investigation into the purge from The Hill here:

A group of Democrats is once again urging the Department of Justice (DOJ) to investigate whether Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin had thousands of voters illegally purged from the state’s rolls. Earli…

Did you know? 💭

Thanks to Same Day Voter Registration, Virginia allows in-person registration during the early voting period, *and* on Election Day, so that you’re able to cast a provisional ballot.

"Without people to man these precincts, democracy cannot function. It’s essential to keep the wheels of democracy rolling."

Our democracy depends on ordinary people who make sure every election runs smoothly and everyone's vote is counted.

Consider becoming a poll worker in Stafford today (link in comments!)

Other localities are in better shape but can always use more workers.

Virginia NAACP continues to hold our government accountable in their investigation into the "quiet changes" made to the rights restoration process.

We're proud to stand by our partners in this fight for a democracy where we all exercise our voting rights.

After receiving some information on how rights are restored to formerly incarcerated people, the Virginia conference of the NAACP has identified additional documents it alleges should have been produced — and the organization is preparing to go to court to seek them.

ICYMI: Virginia's Dept. of Elections admitted last week that *at least* 270 voters erroneously had their voter registrations cancelled.

With voters already casting their ballots during the early voting period, we can't afford anymore mistakes.

Elections Commissioner Susan Beals said officials were directing relevant registrars around the state to reinstate the voters and send them new voting cards.
