Description

Reports of registered voters and persons voting at elections. Requires the local electoral boards to direct the general registrars to investigate the list of registered voters whenever the number of registered voters in a county or city exceeds the population of persons age 18 years or older, based on the most recent population estimate of the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service of the University of Virginia, in order to determine the cause of the inflated number of registered voters, including identifying persons who may be improperly registered. The bill also requires the local electoral boards to direct the general registrars to investigate the list of persons voting at an election whenever the number of persons voting at any election in a county or city exceeds the number of persons registered to vote in that county or city, in order to determine the cause of the inflated turnout, including identifying persons who may not be eligible to vote. The local electoral boards are required to make reports of the findings to the State Board. These reports are public documents. Read the Bill »
