Around 6:00 p.m. last Election Day, the President's campaign asked my wife Dorothy and me to stop by the polls at Montrose Elementary School in Henrico County.
It was dark out and cold, like it is this morning. A line of voters wrapped around the building.
We handed out coffee, hot cocoa, and hand warmers. We encouraged folks to stay in line.
And you know what? Not one person left that line. Not older folks, not families with school-aged kids. Voting was just too important -- for their families and their community.
Just as much is at stake today as there was last Election Day.
Confirm your polling place and please vote before polls close at 7:00 p.m. tonight:
The voters I met last year weren't about to let anyone silence them or take away their right to make their voices heard.
We need that kind of intensity again this year because we can't afford to go backwards in Virginia.
We must keep Virginia a leader in higher education and attract the best jobs in the world.
We must expand health coverage to 400,000 Virginians.
We must protect voting rights for all Virginians.
We must treat LGBT Virginians equally.
And we must ensure women have access to the quality health care that they deserve.
Those will be my priorities as Virginia's next governor. If that's an agenda you can get behind, I would appreciate your vote today.
Confirm your polling place and please vote before polls close at 7:00 p.m.
Thanks for everything,
P.S. -- Did you already cast your ballot? Let your friends know you voted and ask them to vote, too.
