It is election season in Virginia, where voters will go to the polls in November to elect our Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General and state legislative offices. Virginia’s off-year elections are so important, and that is why Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia says it’s “game on” to get conservative women and men registered to vote and to the polls this November! CWA of Virginia is joining with other conservative organizations across the state to get out the vote through voter registration and voter turnout efforts.
I wanted to pass along some important Virginia voting registration 2021 deadlines:
- Friday, September 17 – Early Voting Begins
- Tuesday, October 12 – Deadline to register to vote, or update an existing registration
- Friday, October 22 – Deadline to request an absentee ballot to be mailed to you. Your request must be received by your Registrar by 5:00 p.m.

Get Involved in Virginia!
#1 – Ensure YOU are registered to vote. Go to the Virginia Department of Elections/Citizens Portal to check the following:

Let’s show the nation that Virginia is for life by joining Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Virginia, along with thousands of pro-life individuals from around the state, at the third annual Virginia March for Life in Richmond on Friday, September 17. It is crucial that we come together and visually represent God’s unconditional love for life!
Here are the event details:
Date: Friday, September 17
12:00 p.m. Rally in Capitol Square at the State Capitol (1000 Bank St., Richmond, VA 23218)
1:00 p.m. – March for Life around Capitol Square (approximately one mile)
Men, women, and families are all welcome and encouraged to attend.
We invite you to meet up and march with CWA of Virginia. Drop me an email if you plan to attend, and I will send a meet-up location as the event draws closer.
- Homemade signs are great! If you would like to make your own sign and need ideas, check out the examples on the March for Life website.
- Visit the March for Life website for FAQs and additional details such as vehicle parking options.
With Virginia currently funding the abortion industry with millions of taxpayer dollars and heading into a critical election season where we will choose new state leadership, we need to come together to speak up for unborn babies who cannot speak for themselves. Join us as we march in support of life!
Hoping to see YOU on September 17 in Richmond!
This month, Concerned Women for America of Virginia’s Forest Prayer/Action Chapter hosted a Coffee and Conversation event with Bedford County’s new Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Marc Bergin.
The meeting was opened in prayer and a short overview of Concerned Women for America was given. Dr. Bergin was given an opportunity to make remarks, followed by a time of Q&A. Questions ranged from masking in the schools to transgender policies, Critical Race Theory, and curriculum development in the Bedford County Schools.
We encourage all CWA of Virginia members to be engaged locally by attending Board of Supervisors, school board, and city and town council meetings.
