McAuliffe PAC makes $150K investment in Democratic Party of Virginia voter protection program

terry mcauliffeGovernor Terry McAuliffe’s political action committee, Common Good VA, has invested $150,000 in the Democratic Party of Virginia voter protection program.

The landmark donation will go towards the DPVA’s efforts to fully protect and enforce the fundamental right to vote for all eligible Americans — and defend the McAuliffe administration’s historic work to expand the voting rights of all Virginians.

“When it comes to voting rights, Gov. McAuliffe is a visionary who has fearlessly worked to reverse nearly a century of voter disenfranchisement in Virginia,” said DPVA Chairwoman Susan Swecker. “This investment will provide the Democratic Party of Virginia with the resources to defend Gov. McAuliffe’s legacy on voting rights — and ensure every Virginian can participate in our democracy.”

The $150,000 investment will help support full-time staff dedicated to voter protection and fund efforts to monitor developments in election law, increase access to voting and provide guidance on voting rights and election administration issues.

The donations will also be used to defeat any legislative or political effort at the state, local or federal level that strips Virginians of the right to vote.
