If you live in West Virginia and have not already registered to vote, you will not be taking part in November’s election.
Tuesday was the last day to register to vote in the Mountain State.
The Ohio County Commission Office said online registrations would be welcomed until midnight, but mail-in registrations should have been postmarked by 5:00 p.m.
The general election is set for Nov. 6.
Local officials believe there will be a higher voter turnout because of tight races in the Mountain State.
“I think there’s going to be a pretty high turnout this time, even though its an off year election. Off year elections typically have 25-30% of voters turn up, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see something around 45-50%. Obviously, the more people who come out to vote the better. It’s your constitutional right and your duty as an American citizen to do so,” said Tim McCormick, Ohio County Commissioner.
If you have questions about voting, contact your county clerk or call the West Virginia Secretary of State Elections Division at (304) 558-6000.
