Leesburg, Va (July 14, 2015) – The Loudoun County Office of Elections is offering training for people interested in conducting voter registration drives. State law requires individuals or groups requesting 25 or more voter registration applications from the Virginia Department of Elections or local voter registration offices to register and receive annual training for conducting voter registration drives.
The training will cover best practices for completion of the voter registration application; maintaining the integrity of the voter registration process; prohibited activities; important deadlines for submission of completed applications; laws protecting the privacy of applicants; the restoration of felon voting rights; and Virginia’s photo identification requirements.
While many groups and individuals completed the training last year, certifications must be renewed annually to ensure that groups and individuals are up to date on any changes to laws, regulations, and policies.
The Office of Elections will host in-person training at its offices at 750 Miller Drive S.E., Suite C, in Leesburg on the following dates:
- Thursday, July 30, 2015, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
