Hi West Virginia, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered. If  you have a West Virginia drivers license,   you can register online.

If not, you will need to  print out an application form and mail it in.   Links to both online and printable registration  forms are at But   either way you register, you have  to do it by October 18th.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town, can’t get  to the polls because you’re ill or disabled,   or maybe you want to vote in West Virginia  but you go to college somewhere else,   then you can vote absentee. To do that, you need to fill out   a form to request your ballot from your County  Clerk’s office by November 2nd.

But the sooner   you do it the better, so you have time for them  to get your application, mail you a ballot,   and for you to mail it back so that it gets  to them no later than November 8th.   Any West Virginia voter can vote early  in person though, from October 26th   through November 5th at an early voting location  in your county. You can find all those locations   and their hours at this link. Or you can vote on election day on   November 8th.

You can look up where  you’ll vote at that same link,   and polls are open from am to pm. You’ll also need to bring an ID with you,   like a West Virginia drivers license, state ID,  passport, or military ID, or a utility bill,   paycheck, or bank statement with  your name and address on it.   So once you have your plan  for how you’re going to vote,   where you need to go, what time you’re going  to vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know ahead of time everything  that’s on your ballot, you can find a sample   ballot at so you  have time to research candidates and make your   decisions. You don’t have to vote for everything  on your ballot for it to count, but this is your   best chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from Congress to   your city council or school board.

There are links for everything you need to   register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
