Policies and Information
The State Board of Elections (SBE) was created in 1946 as a bipartisan agency responsible for ensuring uniformity, fairness, accuracy and purity in all elections in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The agency promotes the proper administration of election laws, campaign finance disclosure compliance, and voter registration processes in Virginia by promulgating rules, regulations, issuing instructions, and providing information to local electoral boards and general registrars. In addition, the agency maintains a centralized database of state-wide voter registration and election related data.

Boots and Ballots
The State Board of Elections, in partnership with the Hero's Vote Initiative and local election officials, continues its efforts to ensure military members and their families are well informed on voting through its Boots and Ballots initiative. The goal of Boots and Ballots is to promote military participation in the voting process through education of available resources and tools needed to ensure proper access to voting in elections. This program also promotes better access to electronic voting programs and equipment and assists election officials in providing improved assistance to our military service members and their families.
