MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Berkeley County residents interested in registering to vote are being encouraged by Berkeley County Clerk John W. Small to visit the county's new voter registration office at 110 W. King St.

The voter registration division of Small's office now occupies what had been used by the circuit clerk and other state court offices that relocated to the Berkeley County Judicial Center late last year.

With the move completed last week from the courthouse, Small said Tuesday that plans are under way to stage a grand opening celebration for the new voter registration office, but he did not have a date set.

Small reiterated plans to make use of the bank building's drive-through service window and eventually offer registration services to residents from their vehicles. Small said he believes the convenience will be a first among West Virginia's 55 voter registration offices.

In addition to voter registration, the finance division of Small's office also has moved into the building from the courthouse at 100 W. King St., Small said.

Both moves provide needed space in the courthouse for the remaining tasks of Small's office, which include recording of birth and death certificates, marriage licenses, hunting and fishing licenses, and deeds, Small said.
