RE: STATEWIDE RISK LIMITING AUDIT OF THE RESULTS OF THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020, ELECTION

Pursuant to Va. Code §§ 24.2-669 and -671.1 the Virginia Department of Elections is conducting in coordination with Virginia’s local electoral boards and registrars – a statewide risk limiting audit of the results of the November 3, 2020, election.  Va. Code § 24.2-669 provides, in pertinent part as follows:

In the event that ballots are inspected under clause (i), (ii), or (iv) of this paragraph, each political party and each independent candidate on the ballot, or each primary candidate, shall be entitled to have a representative present during such inspection.  The representatives and observers lawfully present shall be prohibited from interfering with the officers of election in any way.  The State Board or local electoral board shall provide such parties and candidates reasonable advance notice of the inspection.

We anticipate inspecting ballots at the COVINGTON VOTER REGISTRAR’S OFFICE  on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2021 • 10:00 A.M. 

The address is 515 E. PINE ST., COVINGTON, VA 24426

Please let us know who your designated representative will be, it is someone other than you, so that we will be able to recognize that person as your duly appointed representative.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Betty Leitch
General Registrar
