Virginia Attorney General opines that registrars and electoral boards must avoid party jobs

The Roanoke Times reports here that election officials are critical of the Attorney General's recent opinion that state law prohibits registrars and members of electoral boards from holding any kind of political party office. In Virginia, the electoral board for each city and county is made up of a majority of members who are of the same party as the governor, a minority of its members are of the other party - and so, only party activists ever get appointed to electoral boards.
