Description

Voter registration; presumption of domicile; members of a uniformed service and others. Provides that a member of a uniformed service who is on active duty with permanent orders stationing him in the Commonwealth shall be presumed to have established domicile for purposes of satisfying the residency requirements for voter registration, if he has also established physical presence and a place of abode in the Commonwealth, unless he expressly states otherwise. The bill provides for the same presumption for his spouse and any dependent residing with him. The bill defines "uniformed service," the same way the term is defined in the Uniform Military and Overseas Voter Act, as the (i) active and reserve components of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard of the United States; (ii) Merchant Marine, commissioned corps of the Public Health Service, or commissioned corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States; or (iii) Virginia National Guard.
