MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- By Thursday afternoon, more than 1,200 Berkeley County residents had voted in the upcoming primary election, according to Berkeley County Clerk John W. Small Jr's office.

Voters have until 5 p.m. Saturday to vote early for the May 11 election at the Berkeley County Voters Registration office at 110 W. King St. in downtown Martinsburg. Free parking in the 100 block of West King Street is available to early voters.

Deputy County Clerk Bonnie Woodfall told Berkeley County Commissioners on Thursday morning that turnout for the 15-day early voting period had been "good, but not great."

In the 2008 primary, a presidential election year, more than 3,000 people voted early, Woodfall said after she and Small provided commissioners with an update on preparations for election day.

"As far as I'm concerned, we're ready to go," Small said.

A slight adjustment to the poll location at Rosemont Elementary School in Martinsburg was made to accommodate voters who complained, Small said. The voting location inside the school was moved from the back of the building to the front, Small said.

A list of polling places and sample ballots are on the Berkeley County Commission's Web site at http://www.berkeleycountycomm.org

Polls open at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday and close at 7:30 p.m.
