The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors is asking 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."

Yep. The Dem machine has to be in a panic with Fast Terry 2.0 not walking away with this one in the polls.
I'm sure Coonman will agree to it.

People are so fearful of Covid still they can't have human contact with another to witness a ballot signature?
