The following may be attributed to ACLU of Virginia Executive Director Claire Guthrie Gastañaga in response to the Supreme Court of Virginia's latest ruling with regard to Gov. Terry McAuliffe's efforts to restore ex-offenders' right to vote:
"We hope the Supreme Court of Virginia’s prompt rejection of the most recent effort to erect barriers to voting will put an end to such activities for this year and allow us all to focus instead on what should be our objectives at this time of year in a democracy: registering as many people as possible to vote before the Oct. 17 deadline and encouraging everyone to turn out to vote on Nov. 8."
