Elections; methods for counting absentee ballots. Provides that the local electoral board, rather than the general registrar, shall conduct the procedures authorized to expedite the counting of absentee ballots. The bill also requires notice to the political parties or candidates authorized to have representatives present in the polling place so they may have representatives present while the expedited procedures are followed. The bill also places time limits on the use of the expedited procedures. Amends § 24.2-709.1, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
