The West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles, in cooperation with the secretary of state, announced Thursday that a statewide electronic voter registration program has been installed at each of the 24 DMV regional office locations. Customers may now electronically register to vote when they visit any DMV regional office for the purpose of issuing or renewing a driver’s license or identification card.
DMV Commissioner Pat Reed said, “I am pleased to partner with Secretary of State Natalie Tennant on a project that will provide convenience for our customers during credential issuance at regional offices and allow us to meet the National Voter Registration Act requirements.”
Customers that want to take advantage of this new program will simply answer voter registration questions on the signature tablet used during the driver’s licensing/ID card process. DMV locations will continue to offer the paper voter registration applications for customers who do not wish to register electronically.
