The Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) is required to develop and adopt a state plan, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 15404, in order to receive federal funds under the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA).  The state plan is developed in consultation with a committee of stakeholders in the electoral process and is amended whenever there is a material change to the plan.  The Commonwealth’s plan was last amended in 2006.  SBE has developed proposed revisions to the HAVA state plan in consultation with its HAVA advisory committee.
