July 20, 2010

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Deputy county clerks in the Berkeley County Voter Registration office worked the phones Tuesday to line up poll workers and make sure polling locations would be available for the special primary election for the U.S. Senate seat.

The Aug. 28 Saturday election posed concerns that churches and other facilities might not be available because of special events such as weddings, according to chief deputy clerk Bonnie Woodfall.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Woodfall said she didn't know of any poll locations that needed to be changed.

The Voter Registration office also was contacting poll workers, who already were trained for this year's election, to check on their availability for the primary election.

The county has 335 poll workers, said Woodfall, who returned to work Tuesday from being on vacation because of the special election.

Woodfall said Aug. 9 is the last day for residents to register to vote if they wish to cast a ballot in the Aug. 28 election.

Early voting will be held Aug. 20-21 and then Aug. 23-25, from 9 to 5 p.m. at the Voter Registration Office at 110 W. King St. in Martinsburg.

Polls on Aug. 28 open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.
