For decades, Virginia has allowed almost anyone to hand out voter registration paperwork, but in the future, turning in more than 25 applications will require training.
Donald Palmer of the Virginia State Board of Elections says the new requirement is due to an increase in voter registration drives.
"Virginia has gradually become a battleground state, so there are more and more registration drives," he says. "And as we get closer to the general election, you'll see more and more."
Palmer says this training will cover the proper way to handle registrations.
"They're much more careful, and the way they do their business, they do it much more accurately," he says.
Training sessions are free.
