RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Those who want to serve as an election officer in November can sign up online.
The State Board of Elections website allows online registration for volunteers. It also allows them to choose to get information on the volunteer process by text message.
Local election officials will be automatically notified of volunteer offers through this online submission.
The volunteers help election officials on Election Day and on the days leading up to the voting.
Election officials must be registered to vote in Virginia.
