Ballots for the June 9th Primary Election, will be mailed on April 24th – 942 people have requested absentee ballots as of Friday, April 24th. If you have requested an absentee ballot and you do not receive your ballot by April 30th please call the County Clerk’s office at 304-354-6725.

In your envelope you will have:

1. Ballot;
2. Directions on how to vote a paper ballot (PLEASE USE A PEN WHEN COMPLETING YOUR BALLOT);
3. Yellow slip of paper with the name of the write-in candidate for Soil Conservation District Supervisor;
4. Envelope #1 in which to place your voted ballot; and
5. Manila envelope with postage paid to return your ballot to the clerk’s office.

Please make sure you sign across the signature line on the manila envelope containing your ballot.

If you have not mailed back your postcard to request an absentee ballot, please do so as soon as possible. If you choose to vote an absentee ballot, remember June 3, 2020 is the deadline to receive absentee ballot applications by mail.

We want to assure voters that they have options regarding voting in this election – they can request an absentee ballot – vote during early voting May 27-June 6 – or vote on election day June 9, 2020. Please utilize the option you feel most comfortable with during these uncertain times.

The last day to register to vote or change your voter registration is May 19th.

If you are registered as an independent or no party affiliation you may request a Democrat ballot, a Republican ballot, or the non-partisan ballot. Please indicate which ballot you would like to receive on your postcard. We are having to contact individuals who have not indicated which ballot they would like to receive.

Once ballots are received back in the Clerk’s office they are secured in the vault until they can be counted. The ballots are taken out of the manila envelope that has identifying information. The white plain envelopes, without identifying information, are shuffled before opening so no one knows how anyone votes.
