90 for 90

In honor of Henrico County’s Dr. William F. “Fergie” Reid’s 90th birthday and his long history of expanding voters’ rights, Virginians are committing to registering new voters for this year’s election.

If volunteers and candidates worked together to register 90 new voters in each of the Commonwealth’s precincts, our efforts would result in a quarter million new voters for the Old Dominion.

You can learn more about “90 for 90” on their website.
