Voter list maintenance; use of information received through certain list comparisons and data matching exchanges with other states. Requires the information received through the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) and the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program to be used as part of the regular periodic review of registration records conducted by the Department of Elections. Within seven days of receiving information from these programs, the Department of Elections is required to send that information to the general registrars. Within 21 days of receiving that information from the Department of Elections, the general registrars are required to send notice to the voters by forwardable mail along with a postage prepaid, pre-addressed return card for correcting or verifying the information. The bill also requires Virginia, through the Department of Elections, to have active and continuous participation in ERIC and the Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck Program. Read the Bill »
