Qualified voter; definition of "residence." Provides that, for the purpose of determining an applicant's domicile, the general registrar may request information regarding the applicant's intent, conduct, and other attendant circumstances verbally or in writing when the qualification of the applicant is in question or when the applicant provides an address that is not typically a permanent residence address or is not listed as a permanent residence by the United States Census Bureau, the United States Postal Service, or the Virginia Electronic Registration Information System. An applicant shall be presumed to be a resident of the state where he files as a resident for state income tax purposes or has claimed a homestead exemption for property tax purposes. This presumption is rebuttable. Read the Bill »
