Track your Absentee Ballot online

There are various news stories out there creating concern about the security of our elections. Specifically there have been concerns raised about absentee voting. One tool West Virginians can use to secure their vote is the absentee ballot tracking system you can find online at

Any registered West Virginia voter can vote absentee in the upcoming November election. Many already have. In order to get an absentee ballot you must complete an application for absentee ballot. You can get a printable application for absentee ballot here or you can apply online at Though you must have a reason to vote absentee, anyone can check the first box claiming health concerns because of COVID-19 and that will be accepted by the Clerk as a valid reason to absentee vote for this election.

The last day to request an absentee ballot is October 28. After your absentee ballot application is received by your County Clerk, you will be mailed an absentee ballot.

Then once you fill out your absentee ballot you can either mail it in or hand deliver it to your County Clerk. 

The last day to mail your completed absentee ballot is election day, November 3, 2020.

You can find answers to questions about voting in this election at the WV Secretary of State's website at
