We have a little less than 8 weeks before the election. We all need to do our best to re-elect Mark Warner and Bobby Scott back to congress. We also have an opportunity to pick up seats with our candidates Jack Trammel in the 7th and Elliott Fausz in the 4th. The only way we can do that is by identifying and turning out our voters. If you have any interest in grassroots campaigning please fill out our volunteer interest form and we will be sure you have an opportunity to make a difference in this election.

Virginia Young Democrats Day of Action

Posted on

The Supreme court struck down the formula that decided which areas are covered by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act in Shelby County vs. Holder. The purpose of Section 5 was to provide a way to stop discrimination in voting laws before they went into effect. H.R. 3899 seeks to fix this issue.

On September 10, 2014 VAYD is urging all young and young at heart democrats to call their congressmen and voice support for H.R. 3899. If you are willing to join your voice to ours click here.
