Virginia State Board of Elections Proposes Filing Deadline Change
The Virginia State Board of Elections is seeking public comment on a proposed change to its campaign finance filing deadline. The Board is proposing moving the deadline for electronic filing from 5:00 p.m. on the due date to 11:59 p.m. on the due date.
The change was proposed by Board Chairman Charles Judd, who said backup in online traffic shortly before the deadline could result in late filings, and the 5:00 p.m. deadline was based on a close-of-business mindset prior to the existence of electronic filing.
The Board will accept public comments through March 26, 2014, and may be submitted at http://www.sbe.virginia.gov/.
