West Virginians will soon be able to register to vote online through the Secretary of State’s website. Secretary of State Natalie Tennant made the announcement Tuesday at BridgeValley Community and Technical College in South Charleston as part of National Voter Registration Month. “This is going to add accessibility for eligible voters in West Virginia,” said Tennant, following a news conference. It will be as simple as going to a computer, a smart phone or tablet and logging onto www.wvsos.com, according to Tennant.
Citizens can input their information the same way they would on a voter registration card, Tennant said. The website also allows citizens to use their same DMV signature on their registration.
Tennant said the online platform is for those of all ages. She said it will appeal to young people, but will also appeal to the established voter who may need to change an address or piece of information online.
