Ask Governor Tomblin to veto the voter ID bill ASAP

On the last day of session, the legislature passed HB 4013, a bill that would require voters to provide identification at the polls. While automatic voter registration was amended into the bill, the fact that voter ID discriminates against minorities, students, low-income individuals, and seniors still stands. Now the bill’s fate lies in the hands of Governor Tomblin who can either sign it into law or veto it by March 30th.

Please take action and contact the Governor TODAY!

In the 2014 election, ONLY 37% of West Virginia voters cast ballots – the LOWEST turnout in at least six decades. Additionally, voter fraud, and more specifically, voter impersonation, is virtually nonexistent.

HB 4013 is a “solution looking for a problem.”

Please contact Governor Tomblin and ask him to veto this unnecessary and restrictive voter ID law before March 30th.
