Halifax:
Front page in today's Richmond Times Dispatch, U.S. Judge Upholds Virginia's Voter ID Law. In his ruling, the judge noted that Virginia provides free voter IDs, giving all of its citizens "an equal opportunity to participate in the electoral process."

I supported this bill because voting should be open to any legally qualified voter and providing a valid picture ID helps to ensure that.

You can see the full story here: http://www.richmond.com/news/virginia/government-politics/article_fb14253d-0f3b-5e95-bed3-e37b9eac0bb1.html.

Democrats filed suit against Virginia's Voter ID law, partly with funds provided by George Soros (http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2015/06/05/bankroller-of-democratic-voting-rights-cases-george-soros/?_r=0)

In spite of the fact that we have an attorney general who swore to uphold Virginia's laws, we were forced to pay over $100,000 to defend this law.

If you are dissatisfied with Attorney General Mark Herring's refusal to uphold Virginia's laws, contact him and tell his so at: http://ag.virginia.gov/ContactUsForm/ContactForm.aspx.
