Absentee options outlined

September 22, 1998

CHARLESTON, W.Va. - Being out of town on Election Day doesn't have to stop West Virginians from voting, according to Secretary of State Ken Hechler.

Absentee voting can be done by mail, special absentee in-person and regular absentee in-person.

To request an absentee ballot by mail, an application form must be obtained at a circuit clerk's office, completed and returned. The last day for the circuit clerk to receive an application for absentee ballot by mail for the 1998 general election is Wednesday, Oct. 28.

If work or special circumstances require a person to be out of town on Election Day, he or she likely will be eligible for absentee voting in-person. Regular absentee voting in-person will take place from Monday, Oct. 19, to Saturday, Oct. 31, at the circuit clerk's office in the county of residence.

Those who cannot come into the clerk's office during regular absentee voting may be eligible for special absentee voting in-person. That will take place through Friday, Oct. 16, in the circuit clerk's office in the county of residence.
