Every city and county in the Commonwealth of Virginia has a three-member Electoral Board, with bipartisan representation, which is appointed to administer fair, free, open and transparent elections. Recommendations for appointment are made by local political parties and are court appointed for each county or city. Some duties of the Electoral Board are to appoint the General Registrar and Officers of Election for their county or city, train Officers of Election, purchase and maintain the voting equipment, prepare ballots, administer absentee ballot process, conduct elections in a secure and non-partisan manner and certify the results of elections. Electoral Boards ensure the integrity of our election process.
The board meets as needed in order to fulfill duties related to the elections cycle, as well as those designated by the State Board of Elections.
