3 WAYS TO VOTE

#1 Absentee Vote (limited eligibility)

 

Usually, in WV, you have to have a "good reason" to vote by mail. (All voters were eligible in 2020 due to the pandemic.) Voters can request a ballot in a few clicks. Be very careful to follow all instructions exactly and to return your ballot within the dates required, as ballots can be rejected for a wide range of reasons. 

 

  • If you aren't sure if you are eligible to absentee vote, please ask the Monongalia County Clerk for guidance. The Monongalia County Clerk's phone number is 304-291-7230.

  • Right away, request your ballot online or call the county clerk's office to request an absentee ballot.

  • Beginning September 18, the Monongalia County Clerk will mail voters who requested them their absentee ballots. 

  • Complete your ballot.

  • Return ballot by mail or hand deliver to the County Clerk's office. The office is inside the Monongalia County Courthouse, 243 High St., Courthouse Room 123, Morgantown, WV 26505.

  • Hand delivered absentee ballots are due to the courthouse NO LATER THAN the day before Election Day -- Monday, May 9 for the primary or Monday, November 7 for the general.

  • Mailed in absentee ballots are legally allowed with postmarks up through Election Day. However, if you can't hand deliver your absentee ballot, we STRONGLY ADVISE you to mail your ballot as early as possible, as mail delays may render mailed ballots invalid. 

  • If you are hand delivering your ballot to the courthouse, keep in mind that voters are only allowed to deliver a TOTAL of TWO ballots for a particular election. So, that's your own plus up to ONE more. 

  • You can track whether your absentee ballot has been received here. If you mail your ballot in, this could be important with the disruption of the Post Office. 

  • If your ballot has not been received by the county clerk on Election Day you can go to your regular polling place and vote using a provisional ballot. If your mailed ballot does arrive they will only count it and you won't be accused of voting twice.

#2 Early Vote in Person April 27 to May 7 & Oct. 26 to Nov. 5 (RECOMMENDED)

 

  • Primary Early Voting begins on Wednesday, April 27 and ends Saturday, May 7

#3 Vote in Person on Election Day, May 10 & November 8

  • Any voter can vote on Election Day! 

  • Even if you requested an Absentee Ballot but forget to mail it in on time, you can still vote on Election Day. If you'd requested an Absentee Ballot, they'll have you fill out a "provisional ballot" which WILL be counted (as long as your Absentee Ballot doesn't also show up in their mail.) 

  • Polling locations are open from 6:30 AM to 7:30 PM on election day.

  • You will need to vote at your regular polling place on Election Day. Look up your polling place here
