VA College Students Should Vote Before Oct. 6

Millions of voters are purged off of voting lists. The Republicans are using a variety of scams ranging from from using foreclosure lists to prevent folks who have lost their home from voting to absentee ballots with return addresses that are invalid.

Norfolk VA's latest voter scandal involves violating the law and preventing college students living in dormitories from voting.

The Montgomery County voter registrar issued false warnings to suppress the college vote.

IF you are a college student (especially if you live in a dormitory) you should try to vote early. Then if you are having any difficulties you will have until Monday, Oct. 6 to re-register to vote.

It's probably a good idea for everyone (who qualifies--see VA Early Voting Law) who can vote early to do so....especially in swing states. After all, the Republican Party is doing everything it can to prevent Americans from voting. 's up to you to protect your vote and vote wisely.
