The Virginia Fair Elections Coalition is a group of policy organizations, grassroots activists and local election integrity committees. This Coalition is dedicated to supporting the ideals and legal processes involved in free and fair elections in Virginia. VFE supports full transparency of our electoral processes in order to ensure that all Virginians have confidence in every local, state and federal election held in the Commonwealth.
Significant changes to Virginia’s elections were voted into law in 2020 and 2021 based on the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions. We fully support access to the ballot box for every eligible voter and will continue to advocate strongly for that right, however some laws currently in place do not allow for full transparency, create doubt about the fairness of our elections and have created numerous multi-layered bureaucratic processes that impact local registrars and their staff and their potential ability to fully and completely comply without unforeseen errors.
To that end, we stand in support of HB46, HB187, HB205, and SB80 and are working with the patrons of these bills. In addition, we support the passage of the following Senate bills: SB3, SB234, HB235, SB236, SB460, SB652, SB390.
