By Kyle Maichle
RICHMOND, Virginia: Virginians will see electronic poll books at the polling place for the first time this year. The new technology will be used for elections involving Virginia's three statewide ballot measures and all 11 of Virginia's seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.
98 out of 134 localities conducting elections in Virginia will be using the new technology this year. A spokeswoman for the Virginia State Board of Elections said that the Commonwealth of Virginia may move up its voter registration deadline if all localities adopt electronic poll books.
