HB 201 (Same Day Voter Registration) Passes the Virginia Senate

RICHMOND - Today, the Virginia State Senate passed Delegate Hala Ayala’s HB 201, which allows voters throughout the Commonwealth to register to vote on Election Day.

"Same-day registration is one of the easiest ways to make voting more accessible to all Virginians. We have taken down one of the many barriers that has contributed to Virginia being the second-hardest state in the nation to cast your ballot through its passage today," stated Delegate Ayala. "I applaud the Senate for joining the House in passing this very important intiative."

Delegate Ayala is the Patron of HB 201 and has been one of the legislative leaders in electoral reform since joining the General Assembly in 2018. Her major legislative priorities center around providing equality and equity to all Virginians.


Delegate Hala Ayala is the Vice-Chair of Communications, Technology, and Innovation, Chair of the Technology and Innovation Sub-Committee, and the Chief Deputy Whip of the Democratic Caucus. She is a cybersecurity expert and has been a resident of Prince William County for over 35 years.
