Voting Absentee in the WV Election
West Virginia voters who will be out of town during early voting through Election Day, or who are homebound and unable to go to the polls on Election Day and during early voting may apply for an absentee ballot no later than November 2, 2022.
Ballots must be returned by mail and must be postmarked no later than November 8. Military and voters out of the country may use the online ballot delivery system by applying for an online absentee ballot using the separate Federal Post Card Application (FPCA).
You may submit your application by mail, fax, or email (preferred method). All applications must be signed in the handwriting of the voter. Digital or electronic signatures are not valid. Each voter must submit a separate application. It’s not a requirement to submit an ID when applying for an absentee ballot. Your ballot will be mailed via the United States Postal Service once your signed application is received in by your County Clerk’s office.
