West Virginia registered voters may vote in person early at their courthouse (or annex), and in several counties at an additional approved community voting location, Secretary of State Mac Warner said in a news release.
All 55 counties offer early voting, with several offering more than one location around the county during the 10-day period. Any registered voter may vote their ballot early at the county courthouse (or annex) or designated community voting location in the county. Early voting hours differ depending on each county’s normal business hours during the weekdays. Early voting is also available on the last two Saturdays before the May 10 Primary Election, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. in all counties.
West Virginia’s 2022 primaries are semi-open, allowing for voters who are not affiliated with a recognized political party to participate in the party’s primary of their choosing. However, unaffiliated voters must ask the poll workers for the specific party’s ballot they desire to cast. Poll workers are instructed to refrain from prompting voters to request any specific party’s ballot.
