Norfolk State political analyst shares importance of voting ahead of gubernatorial roundtable
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Ahead of a gubernatorial candidate roundtable with 10 On Your Side, Norfolk State University’s legal and political analyst is sharing the importance of voting.
Next month, Virginians will head to the polls to cast their ballots for who they think should be the commonwealth’s next governor.
“The best part of living in Virginia is there’s an election every year and every election is important,” said Dr. Eric Claville. “Why’s that? Because we are giving our voice to policy that’s going to impact our everyday life and place individuals in positions.”
While many groups in American history have worked to get and expand the right to vote, Claville says some people have recently become more aware of the power they hold at the polls.
