The three-member Chesterfield County Electoral Board is a "public body" under the Code of Virginia § 2.2-3701, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Therefore, all electoral board meetings are open to the public and the public is able to provide comment. The only exception is when the Board determines that an issue is within the scope of §2.2-3711(A) and goes into “closed” session. A meeting will not be closed to the public unless the meeting is specifically made exempt by FOIA or another law.
