RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The State Board of Elections is offering another opportunity for individuals and groups to receive training for conducting voter registration drives.

A training session is set for Thursday morning at the board's office in Richmond.

Board policy adviser Nikki Sheridan says 64 people already have received in-person training at four sessions conducted since July 1. More than 350 additional people have completed online training.

A new state law mandates the training for individuals or groups who obtain 25 or more voter registration applications from the State Board of Elections or a local voter registration office. People who simply want to learn more about the voter registration process and laws in Virginia also can receive the training.

Two more in-person sessions are scheduled for Sept. 11 and Sept. 25.
