Editor's Note: This is an op-ed piece from West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner, published verbatim.
West Virginia is just a couple of weeks away from our May 8th Primary Election. This is an exciting time for nearly 1,000 candidates from all parties and from all over the state seeking to serve their friends and neighbors in elected offices.
As the state’s chief elections officer, I want to encourage every registered voter to participate in the upcoming Primary Election. My staff, our 55 county clerks, their employees, and more than 9,000 poll workers are prepared to offer every voter a safe and secure election process.
