Secretary of State (West Virginia)
Brian C. Savilla
|Name:||Brian C. Savilla |
|Home County:||Mason County|
I am currently in the House of Delegates for the 14th District and a social studies teacher in Putnam County.
I am a candidate that wants to serve the people and follow the Constitution. I will serve in a position that is in desperate need of leadership, accountability, and knowledge. I will not waste money on self promotion, and I will prevent costly mistakes caused by incorrect decisions, lack of decisions, and ignoring the Constitution. I will enforce the laws, go after voter fraud, end the progressive pilot projects, work with our clerks, and protect the integrity of our elections process. This is an office that requires sound judgement and an understanding of the codes; not one to be used to push a personal agenda. God Bless.
- Do you think it is a good idea to require voters to show a photo ID at the polls on Election Day? Why or why not?
- Yes, photo ID to vote is a good idea. Citizens must show their ID's to do nearly everything today, except vote. It does not disenfranchise nor discriminate anymore than cashing a check or flying a plane. It simply adds further security to our elections.
- What changes in current election laws do you think are necessary?
- Changes to election laws need to be Voter ID, clarifying that no felons can run since the one from Lincoln County was able to, and increasing penalties on those who harm our elections. The rest is already set in place but is not enforced.
- 50 WORDS OR LESS: Would you support a law requiring West Virginia voters to show a photo ID at the polls? Please explain.
- Yes. Citizens must show their ID's to do nearly everything, except vote. It does not disenfranchise nor discriminate anymore than cashing a check or flying a plane. It simply adds further security to our elections. Next year you will even need ID to receive Social Security due to the Feds.
- 50 WORDS OR LESS: What are your ideas on how to encourage more people to vote?
- To encourage people to vote we need to ensure their vote equally counts the same as everyone else's, and that it is not watered down due to voter fraud. Photo ID, increased penalties on voter fraud, and working with the clerks and prosecutors will increase voter confidence in the system.
