Amending 1 VAC 20-40-70 (Part 2)

Additional recommended changes to 1 VAC 20-40-70:

  • Indent 20-40-70(D)(2) and 20-40-70(D)(3) and make them "a" and "b," respectively, under 1 VAC 20-40-70(D)(1).
  • In 20-40-70(E), registrars are required, "if practicable," to attempt to contact the applicant and obtain the missing information requested on an application for voter registration that is not material to determining eligibility to vote." First, this is not practicable. Second, the pieces of information listed in 20-40-70(B) as being nonmaterial are not necessarily beneficial to processing an application, and the Administrative Code should not place such an unnecessary burden on scarce registration and election resources.
