Amending 1 VAC 20-60-40

A couple of issues with 1 VAC 20-60-40:

  • I suggest inserting language in 20-40-60 clarifying when a provisional ballot is "cast." At this time, it does not appear to be clearly covered by any of the scenarios listed in 20-40-60.
  • Also, the language pertaining to the casting of a paper ballot indicates that a ballot is cast by a voter ". . . placing a paper ballot in an official ballot container." Because Va. Code 24.2-646 requires that a paper ballot be handed to the appropriate officer of election, and it is the officer of election who places the paper ballot into the ballot container, I suggest amending the wording of 20-60-40 to make the paper ballot references in this part of the Administrative Code conform to the requirements of 24.2-646.
