Comments
The current 19 excuses are arbitrary, require disclosure of potentially sensitive personal information, and unfairly privilege some voters over others.

No-Excuse Absentee Voting procedures are proven, secure, and efficient, eliminate burdensome regulation, and increase the confidentiality of voter records.

37 states and the District of Columbia have successfully implemented No-Excuse Absentee or Early Voting, leaving Virginia as only one of 20 states that still use this administratively burdensome process. (See Pew , ACLU, LWV reports)
