Today, April 23, 2021, early voting begins for the Democratic primaries for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General, as well as the Democratic and Republic primaries for the Virginia House of Delegates. Before you vote, know where your state legislators stand on animal protection issues!
We recently posted our 2021 Animal Protection Legislative Scorecard and we hope you'll take a look. At Humane Dominion, we want to make it as easy as possible for voters to see where their state legislators stand on humane legislation. Despite 2021 being a virtual session, this year's scorecard covered a variety of animal protection issues, including humane cosmetics, pet store regulation, research animals and trap-neuter-return.
When we elect animal-friendly decision-makers, we ensure strong animal protection legislation is enacted in the commonwealth. So, please keep animals in mind when you head to the ballot box. They need you to be their voice.
