The site at elections.virginia.gov/voter-ed/ houses information of interest to new voters and seasoned ballot casters alike, according to a department release. In addition to information specific to Nov. 2 ballots and elections, topic areas include election terminology, how the public can volunteer to get involved in the process, an interactive quiz and a MythBusters section to address potential concerns voters may have regarding cybersecurity, voter fraud, voting methods, and overall trustworthiness of election outcomes.

“While the voting process is something most Virginians pay attention to a few days every year, the system that ensures a trusted election outcome never stops,” said Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner Christopher Piper. “That is the job of more than 133 certified registrars and their staff who follow 470 pages of election law. They work year-round to ensure free, fair, and transparent elections with the help of some 15,000 volunteers. They know how rigorous and meticulous our election process is. Now, this website exists so the public can share that same confidence in casting their vote and in our election outcomes.”

Contact the Virginia Department of Elections at (800) 552-9745 or info@elections.virginia.gov. Follow the department on Twitter at @vaElect, Facebook at @VirginiaELECT, and Instagram at @va_election.
