There shall be no reduction in salary 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, in accordance with the provisions of § 24.2-111, Code of Virginia, shall be as hereinafter prescribed.

c. 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.


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 Department 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 Department 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.
