CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Today, May 19, is the last day for West Virginians to register or update voter registration to vote in the June 9 Primary Election.

Voters may apply to register to vote or update voter information online, in person at the County Clerk’s office, or by mail.

To register online: https://ovr.sos.wv.gov/Register/Landing#Qualifications

According to the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office:

To register to vote or update your voter registration online, you must provide the following information:

  • Your name as it appears on your West Virginia driver’s license or ID card
  • Your date of birth
  • Your West Virginia driver’s license or ID card number
  • Your last four digits of your Social Security Number

When you complete the application online it will be submitted to your county clerk for processing. The county clerk will notify you if your application has been accepted or rejected.

If you do not have a West Virginia driver’s license or ID card number and the last four digits of your Social Security Number, you may not submit your form online, but you may enter your information online to be auto-filled in a voter registration application. Once you create your application online, you may print, sign and deliver it to your County Clerk by mail or in person.

If you prefer to complete your voter registration form by hand, you may download a blank voter registration form to mail or deliver in-person.
