Let America Vote Launches Field Operation, Opens First Field Office in Virginia

The first Let America Vote field office today officially opened in Manassas, Virginia as part of a field operation that will span multiple states supporting voting rights champions running for office. The Manassas office will host field staff who will work to elect challengers and incumbents who support voting rights in state legislative races and oppose some of the leading vote suppressors in Virginia, in addition to supporting Ralph Northam for governor.

Virginia House of Delegates districts currently being targeted by Let America Vote include districts 2, 13, 31, 32, 34, 40, 50, 51, 67, and 87.

“Opening our Manassas office is the first step toward building the on-the-ground network of voting rights advocates who will hold politicians accountable for voter suppression in upcoming elections,” said Jason Kander, President of Let America Vote. “To keep politicians in the state legislature from creating obstacles to voting, we need folks who will defend voting rights at every step in the legislative process. We especially need to elect Ralph Northam to continue the hard work that Governor McAuliffe has done to block voter suppression efforts led by Republicans in the Virginia General Assembly. At Let America Vote, we have a large and growing base of volunteers who are ready to hit the doors so that after this November, voting rights will be better protected in Virginia.”

Since its creation in February of 2017, Let America Vote has run radio ads in Georgia, New Hampshire and Virginia opposing efforts to make it harder for people to vote. Let America Vote also ran digital ads for winning New Hampshire House of Representatives candidate Edie DesMarais.
