West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner would like the public to be aware of the changes in dates and deadlines for the 2020 Primary Election, which will now be held on June 9.
On Wednesday, Governor Jim Justice moved the Primary Election back 28 days from May 12 to June 9. Information regarding the upcoming election, including how to register to vote and vote absentee, can be found at GoVoteWV.com.
A shareable social media graphic of the dates is attached. The updated dates and deadlines are as follows:
All registered voters will receive an application to request an absentee ballot for the June 9 Primary Election from their County Clerk by mail in early-to-mid April. Absentee request forms can also be printed from GoVoteWV.com or obtained by requesting a form from your County Clerk by email, phone, fax or in person.
In an effort to ensure access to a ballot while keeping voters, election workers, and the public safe during the Primary Election, Secretary Warner recommends that voters use the absentee ballot process to vote.
Always remember to consult only trusted sources for election information, which are the West Virginia Secretary of State's Office and your local county clerk. County clerk contact information is located at GoVoteWV.com. The WVSOS Elections Division can be reached at [email protected] or by phone at 304-558-6000.
