Virginia Veterans are continuing to vote in high numbers at an increasing pace. As of October 27, more than 98,000 Veterans had voted; an impressive 66 percent increase over last week. Almost one in eight voters so far are Veterans, and nearly 25 percent of voters who are identified as Veterans have voted as of October 27. This is six time the number of Veterans who voted early in the 2019 election.**
While the high Veteran turnout is positive, we need to continue to encourage ALL Veterans to vote; early if possible, and certainly on election day. See the source data from the Virginia Board of Elections at the button.
