Voter Registration Over in W.Va., But 'Inactive' Voters Can Still Vote

Voter registration for the upcoming November 6th General Election is now closed. The online portal will not be reopened until after the general election in November.  

All registrations that were mailed will be added to the voter rolls so long as they were postmarked on or before October 16th.

According to Secretary of State Mac Warner, there have been 92,189 new voters registered since he took office in January 2017.  Of those new voters, 26,008 were high school students.

Any registered voter whose registration status is “inactive” is still eligible to vote a regular ballot, according to the release. “Inactive” voters will be made “active” after casting a ballot in any election.

To check the status of your voter registration, click “Check My Voter Registration” under the Voter Quick Links section at www.GoVoteWV.com.
