Why you should be at the Virginia Election Integrity Summit II!

If you think the infiltration of “Zuck Bucks” into Virginia’s registrar offices and our electoral process is bad, wait until you see what’s happening now! There are only two states with elections this year, and Virginia is one of them. If we don’t act now, and keep an ever watchful eye, Virginia will be the progressive left’s Guinea pig for election reform… moving us further from true election integrity.

Will you join us in our stand to restore trust and faith in Virginia’s elections? Join us in making it easy to vote, but hard to cheat. Join us for VFE’s Election Integrity Summit II on August 20-21 in Richmond.

Registration includes your meals with comments from these outstanding speakers:

  • Ken Cuccinelli | Chairman of the Election Integrity Transparency Initiative and former Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Scott Walter | President of the Capital Research Center and former Special Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy

WORKSHOPS & TRAINING SESSIONS | Register HERE.

Election Integrity Training for Election Workers and Poll Watchers:  Virginians begin voting on September 17th. We need 15,000 slots filled for election workers and poll watchers.  You will learn Virginia’s election laws and procedures, what to look for, how to make sure the laws are followed, and how to get signed up to make sure the election this fall is fair and honest. Taught by:  Dr. Clara Belle Wheeler, Senior Fellow with the Virginia Institute for Public Policy and Virginia’s top expert on election statutes and procedures and Melody Clarke, Senior Regional Coordinator for Heritage Action.

Emergency Project to Document Potential Illegal Registrations:  There are literally thousands of voter registration confirmations being returned to the General Registrars offices.  We need volunteers to help document the returned envelopes and what the GRs are doing about those.  We must make sure that the voter rolls for this fall’s election are not populated with phantom or illegal registrations.  Taught by:  Aimee David, Senior Fellow with the Virginia Institute for Public Policy and J. Christian Adams, President and General Counsel of Public Interest Legal Foundation

Preparing for the Post Election, War Rooms, and Recounts:  It is crucial to an honest election that we are ready for the post-election, and know how to anticipate, document and plan for addressing significant problems once voting begins.  Taught by:   Lee Goodman, former Chairman of the Federal Election Commission and longtime VA attorney who has presided over several Virginia recounts and Brenda Hankins, a Partner at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, focusing her practice on Political and Election law.

Recruiting, Scheduling and Deploying Poll Observers:   The recruitment, scheduling and deployment of trained poll watchers is the key to honest elections in Virginia in 2021.  Learn how to do that in your own county and voting unit.  Taught by:  Melody Clarke, Senior Regional Coordinator for Heritage Action.

Researching How Your Local Election Office Conducts YOUR Elections:  There are many questions that have swirled around the voting systems and protocols of the 2020 election.   Citizens must be engaged and learn to be a regular presence at the election offices.  This session will provide training on the questions, the research, the information that citizens need to learn and find out about your local GR office, from voting systems, to vendors, to outside influences, to the FOIA laws to obtain information, and much more.   Taught by:  Cleta Mitchell, Esq., Senior Legal Fellow at Conservative Partnership Institute.

Vulnerable Voters Training:   Leftwing activists target the elderly, those in nursing homes, group homes, minority communities and homeless people to manipulate and unduly influence and, essentially, ‘steal’ their votes.  This session will outline how we can stop the left from preying on those voters who are most vulnerable.   Taught by:  Lori Roman, President and Tracey Miller, Vice President of American Constitutional Rights Union.   See www.ProtectVulnerableVoters.org  | www.ProtectElderlyVotes.org
