WOODBRIDGE, VA — Starting today, Virginians have the opportunity to cast their ballots to protect affordable health care, reproductive rights, funding for public schools, and gun safety reforms by electing Delegate Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor. Delegate Hala Ayala, Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor, released the following statement.

“Our current Lieutenant Governor has cast 52 tie-breaking votes in the state Senate on critical issues including health care, choice, workers’ rights, criminal justice reform, and more. It is absolutely critical that Democrats hold this seat to protect the progress we have made in our Commonwealth. As early voting begins, I encourage every Virginian to make their voices heard, whether they’re voting by mail, in-person, or dropping off their ballots.
