Virginia's bipartisan election agency has kicked off a review of its PR and media relations account.

virginiaThe Virginia State Board of Elections, grappling with a new voter ID law, just oversaw the contest that tapped Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe, but a recount is likely in the race for attorney general, which sits with a 154-vote margin.

The Commonwealth wants a firm to handle development of integrated PR and communications to guide new voter recruitment and burnish the Richmond-based board's image.

An RFP released Nov. 12 says a two-year pact with three one-year options is expected. Budget is about $400K.

Proposals are due Dec. 19.
