Starting tomorrow West Virginians can request an absentee ballot for the November election

FAYETTEVILLE, WV (WOAY) – Beginning Tuesday, West Virginians may apply for an absentee mail-in ballot to vote in the 2020 general election.

Many are concerned about safety when it comes to in-person voting for this upcoming election. If you would like to vote by mail, you must personally fill out and submit the appropriate form to your County Clerk to be considered for absentee voting by mail.

“If you come out to vote in person, our poll workers will have masks on, and there will be hand sanitizer and gloves. If you are still afraid to come out, you can request an absentee ballot starting tomorrow,” said Fayette County Deputy Clerk Sara Tucker.

People who aren’t registered to vote have until Oct. 13 to register. You can register online on the secretary of state’s website.
