Optional Online Election Officer Training Information

Online training was developed by the Virginia Department of Elections to supplement the county's in-person training and to offer a convenient way for Election Officers to review processes prior to Election Day.

Note that online training does not meet the county's in-person training requirement.

Some material may differ from what is presented at in-person training. In this case, on Election day please follow the instructions you receive from the Fairfax County Office of Elections.
