Voter registration; absentee voting; prohibited changes to voter registration record. Prohibits changes to the registration record of a registered voter who has been sent or provided an absentee ballot from being put into effect until after the election for which he was sent or provided an absentee ballot. The changes are still processed when made or requested by the registered voter. The prohibition applies to registration transactions by electronic means. The bill requires the Department of Elections to provide instructions to the general registrars for enrolling the name and address of voters to whom an absentee ballot is sent or provided into the Virginia voter registration system and for checking the registration record to determine whether a registered voter has been sent or provided an absentee ballot when receiving a request for a change to the registration record.
