A federal judge today issued an order for Virginia to re-open voter registration until 11:59pm Friday October 21. This was issued as a result of online registration crashing last Monday night, the deadline. The governor’s office promoted the online registration and has done a thorough job of recruiting new Democrats to vote. The Democrats must have missed their registration goals so in an effort to stuff the ballot boxes for Hillary the registration deadline has been extended. Anything for Hillary, I suppose.
House Republican leadership released a statement today saying “We obviously accept the court’s order to extend the deadline but the entire episode was unfortunate, predictable, and avoidable.” Their statement also said, “Governor McAuliffe should consider a leadership change at the Department after the November elections and the General Assembly should order a review by the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission when we convene in January.”
First the governor tries to stuff the ballot boxes by turning all felons into voters in one broad stroke, now this.
