Dear Friend,

The forty-first meeting of the VAIB and ONE Voice for Liberties Conference is done! I am thankful for the many positive comments and for those who gave their time to attend. Add September 27-28, 2018 to your calendar for our next meeting. Plan now to attend so you can hear Tim Barton as he provides more historical highlights of our country's religious roots, plus others who will educate and encourage you to stand up and make a difference.

Election of State Leaders November 7!

Election day will be here sooner than you think. The question is will you and Christians like you make a point to vote? This year you will be voting for:

Governor:  Ed Gillespie (Republican) or Ralph Northam (Democrat)?
Lt. Governor: Jill Vogel (Republican or Justin Fairfax (Democrat)?
Attorney General: John Adams (Republican or Mark Herring (Democrat)?
House of Delegates: all 100 seats are up for election.

To find out what district you are in, go to here. Your current delegate is in the lower left corner. Note your district number and see who the current candidates are here. If you have any questions or need help, contact me at . You can view the 2016-17 Virginia General Assembly Report Card prepared by The Family Foundation here. This “report card” shows you how current legislators voted on important issues.

Some areas are voting on members of the school board. You can see which city or county is having those elections here. Please take note of any other races in your area by calling your local registrar or going to

All elections are important to VAIB. Whether we will move good legislation forward or halt bad legislation is dependent on who controls the legislature. As with the current governor, some very good legislation regarding religious liberty protections was vetoed by Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and not enough conservative legislators held seats to override his vetoes. And Lt. Governor Ralph Northam (who is running for governor) killed some important legislation by casting a “No vote” on tied votes in the Senate. Finally, we currently have Attorney General Mark Herring who even failed to defend the Virginia State Constitution in critical areas causing further complications in areas of religious liberty and privacy.

We now have a chance for change. 
Pray for God to work through our elected officials.
Be sure to vote on Tuesday, November 7. 
Urge those who hold to biblical values to vote. 

As always, we are here to assist you. You can contact me at or call the office at 804-299-3986. 

Your voice for Christian liberties!

Executive Director
