Calling a primary election when there is no opportunity for absentee voting on a holiday weekend when many are out of town and on super short notice for no good reason is an affront to the Democratic process. How would Speaker Howell feel if the tables were turned and Democrats forced ill timed primaries on the GOP so they couldn't properly choose their representatives. For shame!

This is no way to run a Democracy! Howell intentionally forced the VA-48 into a caucus to elect who will represent the VA 48th!

This vote will happened on a holiday weekend, and several days prior to the vote, we still don't know for sure who is running! This is not a proper democracy!

This is blatantly immoral. First you bribe a senator, now you want to steal representatives. Shameful.

This does not provide sufficient time for a deliberative process, and calls for an August election when many of us will be away. This shows a callous disregard for one of this state's major parties and will not soon be forgotten.

For someone who already presides over a super-majority in the House to stoop this low is pathetic. You have no honor.

I need time to decide on a candidate - we need good representation in the Assembly!

Democracy is not a plaything subject to crass political games.
