Election Law


Other than a few controversial measures, the 2012 Virginia General Assembly made modest changes to Virginia's laws re-garding the administration and conduct of elections. Most activity in this arena concerned issues that had significant federal election implications: specifically, the adoption of changes to strengthen Virginia's existing voter identification law and the enactment of a congressional redistricting plan. This article surveys developments in Virginia election law for the latter part of 2011and the 2012 General Assembly session. The focus is on those statutory developments that have significance or general applicability to the implementation of Virginia's election laws. Consequently, not every election-related bill approved by the General Assembly is discussed.
