Virginia Senators Tim Kaine and Marc Warner sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday, January 24, asking him to, “[make] clear that the U.S. government will work closely with any candidate who wins fair elections.”  Their letter  affirmed that doing this would be a step towards supporting a “free, fair and transparent vote.”

Virginia is home to 123,800 Salvadorans.  The 2014 presidential election will be the first election in El Salvador in which Salvadorans living abroad can participate through absentee voting.
