Photo ID and Voting

Rob believes that it is critically important that only eligible citizens vote, and that the person registered must be the person who actually comes to the polls.

In 2013, Rob supported Virginia’s new photo ID law, and also patroned House Bill 1765, to help prevent felons from voting and House Bill 1764, to help prevent people from voting simultaneously in more than one state.

Rob also patroned a bill  to require registrars to check citizenship status before allowing a new applicant to register to vote.  However, this bill was not successful.

Rob knows that Virginia has a history of very close elections, and the Commonwealth needs to ensure that this sort of voter fraud is never allowed to overturn the actual will of the people.
