Early voting under way in Jefferson, Berkeley counties

April 22, 2010

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- More than 125 Berkeley and Jefferson county residents voted early Wednesday, the first of 15 days that voters may cast ballots before the May 11 primary election.

As of 4:45 p.m., 88 ballots had been cast at the Berkeley County Voters Registration office at 110 W. King St. in Martinsburg, according to County Clerk John W. Small Jr.

Jennifer Maghan, Small's counterpart in Jefferson County, said 41 people had voted at the courthouse in Charles Town.

Maghan said rainy weather might have affected the turnout.

Most of those voting Wednesday in Berkeley County turned out in the morning, with the first voter arriving when the polls opened at 9 a.m., Small said. The polls for early voting close at 5 p.m.

Early voting continues through May 8, excluding this Saturday and Sundays.
