Description

Officers of election; required training. Requires all officers of election to receive training every two years and whenever a change is made to the election laws or regulations that alters the duties and conduct of the officers. The State Board of Elections is required to develop standardized training programs and provide standardized training materials for use by the electoral boards and general registrars in conducting the training for the officers of election. The bill requires that such materials be reviewed every two years in the year immediately following a general election for federal office. The bill also requires the electoral boards to certify to the State Board that the officers of election have received the required training. Read the Bill »

TECHNICAL. IT SAYS THAT THE OFFICERS SHOULD BE TRAINED BEFORE THE FIRST ELECTION THEY SERVE IN. SO I WOULD THINK THAT'S A GOOD IDEA AND WOULD ASK THE BODY TO APPROVE THE GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATION. THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER. Speaker: SHALL THE HOUSE AGREE TO THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE GOVERNOR? [ BELL ] Speaker: THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL. Clerk: AYES 98, NOS ZERO.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): Speaker: RECOMMENDATIONS ARE AGREED TO.
