The fiscal impact statement states that the fiscal impact of the proposed legislation is currently indeterminate. However, it notes that there may be a minimal fiscal impact if the Virginia Department of Elections needs to redesign the current system being utilized. The impact would primarily affect the Virginia Department of Elections, State Board of Elections, and localities (General Registrars and Electoral Boards). No technical amendment is necessary.
