Changing the date of the 2024 primary was a bad idea at this point in time to begin with, but House Democrats violated House rules to make it even worse, in the style of the 2005 midnight pay raise. Thankfully, the bill was overwhelmingly defeated.

You MUST watch this exchange I had with the Deputy Secretary of the Commonwealth regarding drop boxes and the Department's practice of gleaning your cell phone number and email address from other departments of state government. Pretty sure you'll be as uncomfortable with the answers as I was.
