          SJ 6 allows a governor to serve no more then 2 terms but they can be served consecutively.
          SB 399 does say popular votes will govern in Virginia over the electoral college in the presidential race. This will go into effect only after the majority of the electoral college agrees to this same law.

              Mike you may be mixing SB for SJ, SB’s are Senate bills, SJs look like Constitutional Amendments.

              ———————————————————–
              SJ 14 Constitutional amendment (first resolution); qualifications of voters; restoration of civil rights.
              Introduced by: R. Creigh Deeds | all patrons … notes | add to my profiles

              SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

              Constitutional amendment (first resolution); qualifications of voters; restoration of civil rights by general law. Authorizes the General Assembly to provide by general law for the restoration of civil rights for persons convicted of a felony. The present Constitution provides for restoration of rights by the Governor, and the amendment retains this right.

              —————————————–
              This is interesting as it was introduced by a republican. How does the voting pan out in VA congressional districts? This may be a way to beat the cities.

              SJ 29 Constitutional amendment (first resolution); election of the Governor, Lieutenant Governor.
              Introduced by: Amanda F. Chase | all patrons … notes | add to my profiles

              SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:
              Constitutional amendment (first resolution); election of the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General. Changes the method of election for the Governor, and by reference, the Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. The candidate receiving the highest number of votes in a majority of each of the congressional districts shall be declared elected. Under current law, the person receiving the highest number of votes statewide is declared elected. Ties in the number of votes in a given congressional district or in the number of congressional districts won are determined by a majority vote of the General Assembly.

              ——————————————

              SJ 8 Constitutional amendment; qualifications of voters and the right to vote.
              Introduced by: Mamie E. Locke | all patrons … notes | add to my profiles

              SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:
              Constitutional amendment (first resolution); qualifications of voters and the right to vote. Establishes that the only qualifications to vote in the Commonwealth are United States citizenship, being at least 18 years of age, residency in the Commonwealth, and registration to vote in accordance with the requirements set out in the Constitution of Virginia. The amendment further provides that any person who meets those qualifications has the right to vote and that such right cannot be abridged by law. The bill removes from current constitutional qualifications to vote not having been convicted of a felony and not having been adjudicated to be mentally incompetent.
