A Statement from Our Chair Regarding the Recent Supreme Court Decision

After fifty years of established law that protected a woman’s constitutional right to make decisions about her own health and body, the Supreme Court overturned the landmark ruling of Roe v Wade. This callous decision will create significant hardship for countless women and others across our country, stripping away their right to privacy and right to equal protection under the law. Pregnant individuals who are seeking abortion in many states will have no option but to travel elsewhere for the medical care they desperately need. Abortions are health care.  Additionally, this ruling ignores the destructive economic burden and impact it will have on working families.  This is an unconscionable, brutal attack on basic human rights, a move that is out of step with the majority of Americans.

Make no mistake about it, the Democratic Party of Virginia and Chesterfield County Democratic Committee are fully committed to protecting the right to an abortion here in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our Democratic elected representatives will fight every effort put forward by Governor Youngkin to criminalize abortion and reduce an individual’s right to make choices about their own body and the reproductive health care they need.  Our path is clear. We must continue to support and elect Democrats who will unequivocally fight to protect this right.

Larry Barnett, Chair

Chesterfield County Democratic Committee

Apply to be an Officer of Election in Chesterfield

Help make voting safer for your neighbors.

If you are interested in applying to be an Officer of Election to work INSIDE a polling place at the November 3, 2020 election, please fill out the Officer of Election Interest Form, and the Registrar’s team will be in touch with you to schedule training. Our Registrar could really use the help right now during the COVID-19 crisis as a lot of the current volunteers are members of high-risk groups and should not be in contact with the public at this level. There WILL be precautions taken – distancing practices, gloves, masks, etc. If you have any questions, send 1st Vice Chair Becky Conner an email at ccdc.beckyc@gmail.com
