Summary as introduced:
Constitutional Amendment (first resolution); postponement of elections. Allows the General Assembly to provide by law for the postponement of elections due to an emergency. Because the Constitution requires that elections for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General and General Assembly members be held on the first Tuesday following the first Monday in November, these elections cannot be postponed by law. Times for primaries, special elections, general elections for local or constitutional office and referenda and elections for federal office to fill vacancies in the United States Senate or the United States House of Representatives are currently set by law and can be postponed without a constitutional amendment. This bill is a recommendation of the Joint Subcommittee Studying Virginia's Election Process and Voting Technologies (HJR681/SJR 363 -- 2001).
