“Having secure, legal, and trustworthy elections is foundational to the freedoms we enjoy in Virginia. But for too many Virginians, trust in our election system has been shattered and the process has failed to deliver on the transparency and accountability expected from voters.”
Pete released a comprehensive election Integrity plan, called “Honest Vote: Snyder’s Election Integrity Plan.” The plan consists of six policy pillars to restore accountability, transparency, and confidence in our elections. The six pillars of Honest Vote:
- Accountability and Transparency
Guarantee access for all campaigns to the entire voting process and forbid unelected bureaucrats from making changes to voting laws.
- Photo ID at the Polls
Verify all voters are indeed who they say they are while assisting Virginians in acquiring proper identification.
- Signature Match Absentee Ballots
Confirm votes cast using signature and witness requirements for absentee ballots.
- Up-to-Date Voter Rolls
Restore and update the system to ensure that only eligible voters are registered, and there is standardized data sharing with localities to maintain the most up-to-date information.
- Protect U.S. Citizenship
Assure only U.S. citizens can participate in our elections.
- Establish Voter Fraud Reporting Portal and Hotline
Address election concerns with urgency by maintaining an online portal and hotline for reporting issues at the local and precinct level to help identify voter irregularities.
