The State Board of Elections was created by an act of the General Assembly. The act granted the board supervisory powers over elections earlier exercised by the secretary of the commonwealth and the Board of State Canvassers. The State Board of Elections supervises and coordinates the work of county and city electoral boards and registrars, thereby assuring uniformity in election proceedings and legality in all elections. After an election, the State Board of Elections transfers returns and other relevant records of the previous election to the Library of Virginia. Although most of the records are available at the Library of Virginia in downtown Richmond, some are housed at the nearby State Records Center.[1]
