Sen. Kamala Harris said on Monday that “every single governor” should follow Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s lead and make Election Day a state holiday, while dropping voter ID requirements.
“Every single governor should follow his lead,” Harris tweeted alongside an article about Northam signing a bill that makes Election Day a state holiday, replacing the Lee-Jackson state holiday.
The Virginia governor, as reported in The Hill, “also signed a bill repealing Virginia’s voter ID law and a bill expanding access to early voting” for “45 days prior to an election without a stated excuse.” Northam wrote in a statement, “Voting is a fundamental right, and these new laws strengthen our democracy by making it easier to cast a ballot, not harder. No matter who you are or where you live in Virginia, your voice deserves to be heard. I’m proud to sign these bills into law.”
Eliminating voter ID is a clear move to clear the way for voter fraud, which is why Kamala Harris and her fellow Dems support Northam’s bill.
