Why Dr. Ralph Northam is a voting rights champion:

  • As a member of the Senate Committee on Privileges and Elections, Dr. Ralph Northam consistently fought Republican efforts to pass voter ID and restrict voting rights in Virginia.
  • Dr. Ralph Northam’s voting rights platform includes repealing Virginia’s unnecessary and restrictive voter ID law, enacting same-day voter registration and no-excuse early voting and continuing Governor McAuliffe’s work on voter rights restoration for Virginians with felony convictions.
  • “Dr. Ralph Northam has made protecting voting rights a key part of his platform, and we need him to continue Governor McAuliffe’s work fighting back against Republicans in the legislature who are trying to restrict access to the polls. Ralph has been has been a vocal leader on expanding the right to vote in Virginia, which is how I know he’ll work to make sure every eligible voter in his state has their voice heard on election day. We are proud to stand by Ralph because he values the right to vote, and I know he’ll do everything in his power to protect it.” — Jason Kander on Let America Vote’s endorsement of Dr. Ralph Northam for Governor
