Virginia is one of the 30 states that offers no-excuse absentee voting. The Mother of States also provides both in-person and online voter registration. Unfortunately, Virginia does not allow same-day voter registration. Virginia does not have a plan to provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to poll workers and in-person voters nor does it have a plan to provide pre-paid postage for absentee voters. Pre-paid postage is an important way to ensure all voters can exercise their right to vote-by-mail without a financial or time burden.

- Require safe and meaningful in-person options for people without reliable mail service
- Restore voting rights for individuals convicted of misdemeanors or felonies, and disseminate information on restoration of voting rights

Become a Democracy Organizer for Your Community
As a Democracy Organizer, you’ll receive training and assistance on how to activate your own team of volunteers. Your mission: to use the resources available to you through Brady and March for Our Lives to help your volunteers take the action to eliminate the barriers to accessible voting, for this years election and beyond.
What does that actually mean? We’ll ask you to create your own team of volunteers made up of your friends and family. Then we’ll train you on the campaign’s strategy and tactics. So in an average week on the campaign, we’ll ask you to set up a video-conference meeting with your team where you’ll explain the team’s actions for the week. Don’t worry--you won’t be expected to do this on your own. We’ll help every step of the way! We expect this work will take 5-7 hours a week.
