    Everybody in VA, commit to finding ONE citizen who didn't vote in 2018, and ensure that they vote this year.

    State elections in Virginia take place in odd years: 2019, and then again in 2021. Federal elections have no direct bearing on what's going on right now on the gun front in Virginia.

    Besides that, turnout among gun owners wasn't the real problem in 2019. The whole system was stacked against us. (When I went to vote, there was no pro-gun candidate on the ballot.)

    Thank you, I didn't know VA state elections are in odd years. All the more reason to work even harder on recalling Governor Blackface and the idiot atty general.

    IAC, a massive turnout in the federal elections will still send a message

    While ultimately important, voting isn't enough.
    Nor is getting others to vote.
    Real activism creates change by consistent inlfuence.
    One and done doesn't cut it.
    Contacting you reps is the single most important way to influence their vote. All have a district office, and a constituent correspondence rep.
    Establish a relationship with them, be courteous, concise, and calm. Look good and speak intelligenly. Use phone, email, and social media to get the message out. Get others to this also.
    Join and support and participate in your local/state 2A organization.
    Good luck
