Voting Information

When is Election Day?

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls will be open that day from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. You can find your polling place by contacting your county clerk's office, or by entering your name and birth date here

Can I vote early?

Early voting in West Virginia begins Wednesday, Oct. 26, and ends Saturday, Nov. 5. Hours vary slightly by county. A full list of county early-voting hours is available here

Who's on the ballot?

You can see sample ballots from most of West Virginia's 55 counties here. The Charleston Gazette-Mail published Kanawha County's sample ballot in its print edition on Oct. 18, and will again on Nov. 7, the day before the election.

Do I need ID to vote?

No. The West Virginia Legislature passed a law this year that requires some form of ID to vote, but that law doesn't go into effect until next year. More Info

Can I take a photo inside the voting booth?

No. West Virginia law doesn’t allow that. More Info

I've seen a violation of election laws. How do I report it?

Call the Secretary of State's office at 304-558-6000 or 866-SOS-VOTE (866-767-8683).

I have other questions about voting.
