Virginia Spent $62K on Scrapped GOP Affiliation Statement

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- An official says the Virginia Department of Elections has spent over $62,000 on a required party affiliation statement that the Republican Party of Virginia requested, but now wants scrapped.
    
The expense covers the printing and mailing of nearly 3 million forms that, at the party's request, state elections officials were requiring all GOP primary voters to complete before casting a ballot.
    
Martin Mash, a policy adviser for the elections agency, provided the costs Tuesday.
    
A Virginia Republican party committee voted Saturday to ask the state not to implement the statement for the March 1 GOP presidential primary.
    
State Republican Party spokesman David D'Onofrio says the party offered to cover the printing costs but the state didn't act on the offer.
