Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase is calling on GOP Governor Glenn Youngkin to issue an executive order banning fraud-ridden electronic voting equipment and for all of Virginia’s elections to be conducted on paper, hand-counted ballots. Chase’s call to secure elections comes on the heels of the arrest of a Northern Virginia elections official and after hundreds of thousands of votes across the state’s 2020 contests have been called into question by way of credible fraud evidence.
America First State Senator Amanda Chase has issued a public call for Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin to order all of the state’s elections be carried out on paper ballots with votes tallied by hand. The measure aims to eliminate the use of electronic voting equipment, which has been proven to be highly susceptible to fraud.
After initially making the call in a press release two weeks ago and receiving no action, Chase posted a public video statement to social media.
In her video statement, Chase said she’s “calling for Glenn Youngkin to issue an executive order calling for paper ballots to be used in this coming November’s elections and for there to be a hand count.” Additionally, Chase says she’s “calling for the elimination of all voting computers.”
“We do not have confidence in the voting computers that are being used here in Virginia,” Chase said and pointed out that just weeks ago, former Prince William County elections chief Michele White was indicted on 2020 corruption charges.
“We need fair, safe, free, and transparent elections,” Chase went on. “And we the people believe that in order to do so, we must have hand-counted paper ballots on election day.”
“Governor, we’re asking you to do the right thing,” Chase said. “Please issue an executive order calling for the elimination of voting computers altogether, for the use of paper ballots, and for hand counts to be done precinct by precinct.”

Electronic voting equipment has been at the center of the historic investigations into 2020 fraud, including in Virginia, where hundreds of thousands of Democrat votes were dropped into deep-blue Northern Virginia’s totals in the middle of the night and swung the state for Joe Biden.
In the 7th District Congressional race, just before officials were set to announce a Republican winner, a discarded thumb drive full of thousands of Democrat votes was suddenly discovered, keeping Biden Democrat Abigail Spanberger in Congress.
National File reached out to Governor Glenn Youngkin’s office for comment on this story, asking whether he will move forward with Chase’s plans to secure Virginia’s elections.
In response, Team Youngkin falsely claimed that Virginia is already running elections exclusively with paper ballots, and completely ignored the electronic voting equipment aspect of Chase’s call for action. They mentioned nothing about a hand recount.
The Governor’s office also reaffirmed Youngkin’s support of the reported 2020 election results, directing National File to a previous statement when, on the 2021 debate stage, Youngkin conceded to Democrat Terry McAuliffe that Biden had won fair and square.
“Joe Biden’s our president,” Youngkin said at the time.
Shortly thereafter, Youngkin said that if were he a member of Congress, he would have voted with Democrats and the GOP establishment to certify contested 2020 election results and install Joe Biden as America’s 46th President.
Amidst Virginia’s ongoing election integrity fight, National File spoke directly with America First conservative Jarome Bell, who made restoring election integrity a centerpiece of his 2nd District Congressional campaign, where the GOP establishment collaborated with Democrats to stop him.
“I won’t hold my breath on Youngkin doing anything because he would have to admit there was fraud in the 2020 Election,” Bell told National File, before dismissing AG Jason Miyares and his supposed “Election Integrity Unit” as a political stunt.
“We know the Miyares election integrity team is all politics,” Bell continued. “He said there was no fraud.”
Though GOP Attorney General Jason Miyares has been hailed by Fox News for establishing an “Election Integrity Unit” within the AG’s Office, he was recently blasted by a group of concerned citizens who say he ignored the massive evidence of 2020 fraud they presented to his office.
In February 2021, shortly after he took office alongside Glenn Youngkin, Miyares fired Deputy Attorney General Monique Miles on the same day that The Washington Post published a hit piece on her pro-election integrity social media posts. Recently, Miles filed a defamation lawsuit against Miyares and several high-ranking members of his office related to her cancel culture firing.
