Comments

ACLU-VA Voting Rights, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

The ACLU of Virginia supports legislation that helps to ensure that qualified voters are not automatically purged from the voter rolls and disenfranchised. The legislation requires that election officials provide affected voters with notice before removing their name from the poll book.
