Trump ‘fraud’ commission is a tool for voter suppression

The 82nd West Virginia Legislature Scorecard
The 82nd West Virginia Legislature is made up of the 2015 and 2016 legislative sessions. It was unique in that for the first time since the middle of the last century, conservatives had control of both the House of Delegates and the state Senate. Needless to say, it was not a two year stretch of progressive lawmaking. This is one of the reasons WV Citizen Action Group decided to revive its legislative scorecard. Citizens need to know how their elected representatives voted on issues of importance, especially before the upcoming election.More

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.More
