Authority: Title 24.2, Chapter 1, Code of Virginia.


A.1.a. In determining the salary and normal days of service per week for each general registrar, the State Board of Elections shall use the most recent population estimate from the United States Bureau of the Census or the Center for Public Service of the University of Virginia. The State Board of Elections shall adjust such population estimate, where applicable, for any annexation or consolidation order by a court when such order becomes effective. There shall be no reduction in salary or normal days of service per week by reason of a decline in population during the terms in which the incumbent general registrar remains in office.


b. The annual salaries of general registrars authorized to work five normal days of service per week in accordance with the provisions of § 24.2-111, Code of Virginia shall be as hereinafter prescribed.

d. Any locality required to supplement the salary of a general registrar on June 30, 1981, shall continue that supplement at the identical annual amount as paid in FY 1981-82. This supplement shall continue as long as the incumbent general registrar on July 1, 1982 continues in office. Further, any locality may supplement the annual salary of the general registrar by an amount up to 10 percent of the annual compensation set for the general registrar pursuant to this act. There shall be no reimbursement out of the state treasury for such supplements.

No general registrar's normal days of service per week shall be less than that which was previously authorized as of June 1, 1981.


f. All general registrars whose normal days of service are less than five days per week shall be required to be open five days a week during August, September, October, November, and December of each year. Such registrars shall be compensated accordingly.


2. General registrars in the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William and the Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, and Manassas Park shall receive a cost of competition supplement equal to 15 percent of the salaries authorized in paragraph A.1.a. The cost of this supplement shall be paid out of the general fund of the state treasury.


B.1.a. The State Board of Elections shall set the annual compensation for secretaries and members of local electoral boards on July 1 of each year. In determining such compensation, the State Board of Elections shall use the most recent population estimate from the United States Bureau of the Census. However, should more recent population estimates from the Center for Public Service of the University of Virginia indicate that the population of any county or city has, since the last United States census, increased so as to entitle such county or city to be placed in a higher compensation bracket, such county or city shall be considered as being within the higher bracket for the purpose of fixing the annual compensation.


b. The annual compensation of the secretary of each local electoral board shall be as hereinafter prescribed, except that the secretary of an electoral board in any county with election responsibilities for more than seven towns shall receive, in addition to the annual compensation listed below, $50 per year for each town over seven.
