Democrats can’t win unless they cheat.
Virginia Democrats now want Governor Ralph Northam not to require absentee signature witness signatures prior to the gubernatorial election, citing Covid threats.
The race between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Terry McAuliffe is tight. Democrats are aware of their chances of losing, so Covid has been used by the Democrats to cheat again just as in 2020.
Terry McAuliffe stated the quiet portion loudly earlier in this week and said Joe Biden is not popular during a zoom-call.

“We gotta get Democrats out to vote. As you all know, Washington is causing a lot of problems for us. The president is unpopular today unfortunately here in Virginia, so we have got to follow through,” Terry McAuliffe said.
The governor’s race is tight so the Democrats are working to waive signature requirements.
Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has asked Gov. Ralph Northam to waive the witness signature requirement for absentee ballots cast by mail in this fall’s election.
The board voted 9-1 for the proposal by Chair Jeffrey McKay to send a letter to Northam, with Springfield District Supervisor Pat Herrity, the board’s only Republican, casting the only vote against the motion.
McKay said that waiving the witness signature requirement – as was done during the 2020 election – is necessary due to the continued threat of COVID-19. He said several Fairfax residents had shared concerns with him about obtaining witness signatures – arguing they could be exposed to COVID-19 in the process.
“No one should have their ballot rejected because they’re unwilling to risk their health and safety to vote,” McKay said during the meeting. “We want to be a county that promotes voter participation and doesn’t punish people.”
Herrity said that waiving the requirement would be a “blow to election integrity.”
“Witness signatures are important as they provide another line of defense against voter fraud,” he added. “They’ve been deemed important enough by the General Assembly that they were reestablished outside the state of emergency.”
