    The City of Lynchburg uses Unisyn Voting equipment with software version 1.3.0.1 .  All voting equipment must undergo rigorous testing and certification by the State Board of Elections.  All ballots in Lynchburg are marked on paper, including the one touch-screen voting device offered to voters with disabilities who could have trouble filling in the circles on a paper ballot with ink; the touch-screen devices print a paper ballot on which the voter can confirm that his or her vote was properly recorded. All paper ballots are fed into a scanning machine for counting, and the machine keeps an electronic image of every ballot scanned. The scanned vote totals are reviewed and confirmed one by one for each voting precinct by the Electoral Board the day after each election in a "canvass." 
     
    All absentee ballots submitted by mail or brought to the registrar’s office before and during Election Day are required to be submitted in supplied envelope which includes the voter’s signature.  
     
    The electronic vote totals and the images are downloaded onto thumb drives at the close of federal elections. All paper ballots from all elections and thumb drives are kept by the circuit court clerk's office for two years after federal elections so that they can be examined and counted in the case of a recount or other need.  

    Virginia Election Code

    The three-member Electoral Board (appointed by the Circuit Court) and the General Registrar (appointed by the Electoral Board) have the mission of maintaining an accurate list of registered voters and administering elections in a fair, efficient, and equitable manner. The General Registrar for the City of Lynchburg manages all activities related to voter registration, facilitates citizen education regarding registration and voting, and works under the direction of the Electoral Board to prepare for, administer, and report the results of local, state and federal elections.
