The vote is your fundamental right in America. It is not conditional but a lifestyle. Clovia “Miss Community” Lawrence
Virginia has an election every year which means the people’s voice should be heard on issues of healthcare, education, civil rights, justice, jobs and medicare. Every aspect of your life is decided on at the “stroke of a vote”. And, all politics are local.
Clovia Lawrence and her team Rolling For Freedom-R4F will report to the Richmond City Justice Center today to register eligible inmates to vote or vote by absentee if they will be incarcerated on election day in November. Thanks to Sheriff C.T. Woody, Jr. this is the 6th year that Rolling For Freedom-R4F has serviced eligible inmates with voter registration and absentee voting.
The Virginia Department of Elections in partnership with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) have launched online voter registration for eligible citizens of the Commonwealth. Register to vote, check your status, check candidates on the voter ballot or update your information online at the Virginia Department of Elections.
CLO FACT: You are not a registered voter until you received your voter registration card in the mail.
If you were convicted of a felony and would like to start the process of getting your rights restored get information here. For more information, visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website.
Your vote is your voice, your right and your power. A “no” vote from you is a “yes” vote for the candidate you don’t want to hold public office. Learn about your voter rights and responsibility at Miss Community’s Voter Empowerment and Restoration of Rights Rallies through October. Brought to you by the Rolling for Freedom Project-R4F.
