Secretary of State Mac Warner announced that he has issued guidance and a funding opportunity to assist county clerks with mailing an absentee ballot application to every registered voter in West Virginia for the May 12 Primary Election.

There are three simple steps for voting an absentee-by-mail ballot:

  1. The voter submits an absentee ballot application to their county clerk;
    (Watch your mail for the COVID-19 card mailed by your County Clerk the first week of April)
  2. Once approved, the county clerk will mail a postage prepaid absentee ballot with instructions and materials to the voter;
  3. The voter marks the absentee ballot according to the instructions and places it in the mail to be postmarked by Election Day, May 12, 2020.

The goal of this uniform, statewide mailing is to ensure every eligible voter has an opportunity to vote while protecting the health of voters, county clerks’ staff members, election workers, and the general public, while maximizing participation in the May 12 Primary Election.

Voters who do not wish to vote in person due to the coronavirus situation are eligible to request an absentee ballot by mail. Voters may still vote in-person during Early Voting (April 29-May 9) or on Election Day (May 12).
