Straight Ticket Voting Eliminated

During last year’s WV legislative session, a change was made to WV Code eliminating the option of voting a straight party ticket in the General Election (§3-6-2 (g)). Please help us get the word out about this important update as we approach the 2016 General Election.

Effective this General Election:

  • There is no straight-party ticket voting
  • West Virginia voters will no longer be able to vote for all candidates in a political party by making a single mark on the ballot
  • Every voter will need to individually select each candidate they wish to vote for

Attached is a flyer that helps explain the changes (in both color and black & white).  You can feel free to share this flyer digitally or print for your office. You can also share a link to the version on our website. Or, you may request print copies of the flyer – provided on a first-come, first-served basis – by emailing elections@wvsos.com.

As always, you can let the Secretary of State’s Elections Division know if you have any questions at elections@wvsos.com or 304-558-6000.

Thank you so much for all that you do.

Natalie
