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 provisional population estimate from the Weldon Cooper 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.

c. The annual salaries of general registrars authorized to work three normal days of service per week shall be fixed at 60 percent of the salary prescribed above for the population range in which the locality falls.


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 1982. 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. There shall be no reimbursement out of the state treasury for such supplements.


e. Normal days of service per week for each general registrar shall be fixed on July 1 each year by the State Board of Elections as hereinafter prescribed.

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 A1a. 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 Weldon Cooper 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.

c. The annual compensation of other members of local electoral boards shall be fixed at one-half the annual compensation provided to the secretary of the board.


d. The governing body of any county or city may pay to a full-time secretary of an electoral board such supplemental compensation as it deems appropriate. There shall be no reimbursement out of the state treasury for such supplements.


2. Nothing herein contained shall prevent the governing body of any county or city from paying the secretary of its electoral board such additional allowance for expenses as it deems appropriate but there shall be no reimbursement out of the state treasury for such expenses.


3. Notwithstanding § 24.2-108, Code of Virginia, counties and cities shall not be reimbursed for mileage paid to members of electoral boards.


C. Included in the appropriation for this Item is $30,900 the first year and $30,900 the second year from the general fund to provide temporary full-time status for part-time general registrars. Such temporary full-time status may be granted by the Board of Elections, upon request of the Local Electoral Board, in recognition of temporary or permanent increases in workload. In making its determination, the Board of Elections shall consider elections, if any, required to be conducted by the locality during January through July, and evidence submitted by the Local Electoral Board to document increases in workload. Such evidence shall include specific data with comparisons, by transaction type and by month experienced, of past and present workloads. Temporary full-time status, if granted, may include all or part of the time normally worked on a part-time basis.
