RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Electronic filing is becoming popular among candidates for local offices in Virginia.

The Virginia Public Access Project says 433 local candidates used e-filing to submit their year-end campaign finance reports this month. That's up 49 percent from January 2012, when there were 290 e-filers.

At least one candidate used e-filing in 77 of Virginia's 133 localities this year. Fairfax County had the most e-filers, 28.

State Board of Elections election services manager Chris Piper attributes the increase to an online filing system that was launched in January 2012.
