RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam wants to make it easier to vote early and harder for political candidates to bring in big checks.
The Democratic governor outlined a package of proposed legislation Monday that includes a bill to allow no-excuse absentee voting.
Virginia currently limits absentee voting to people with qualifying reasons.
The governor is also proposing new campaign finance limits that would cap donations at $10,000, block direct donations from corporations, and prohibit lawmakers from the personal use of campaign funds.
