MARTINSBURG, W. Va.- Primary elections in West Virginia start on May 13, and in order to vote you need to be registered by the April 22, deadline, which is less than a week away.
"That's the last day to register to vote if you're not registered, and to make any changes to current registrations," said Bonnie Woodfall, Chief Deputy of Elections.If you want to register to vote, you can stop by any registration office, DMV and other state agencies as well. If you can't make it to a registration office by Tuesday, there are other options for you.
"There is the Secretary of State's website that you can go to download an application," Woodfall adds. "It still has to be returned to us."
Pennsylvania recently passed a law that does not require an ID when you go to vote. The same goes in West Virginia.
"The only voters that need to show ID is your first time registers that register through the mail," Woodfall said. "They are not seen. When they register through the mail we can do a verification of address, but we haven't seen you."April 30, marks the deadline to register for early voting, and May 7, is the deadline to apply for an absentee ballot.
