MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- Berkeley County Clerk John W. Small Jr. told county commissioners Thursday he was "strictly opposed" to opening satellite locations for early voting for elections, primarily because of the extra security, equipment and staffing needed to make it viable. "It's going to cost the county a whole lot of money to even set up one outside location," Small said. State lawmakers this year passed legislation that allows counties to provide additional locations for early voting, in addition to the County Clerk's office.
