Are you registered to vote in the upcoming election? Mark Apr. 22 on your calendar. This is the last day to register to vote in the Primary election.

There are only four requirements for you to have this privilege:

--You must be a U.S. citizen and reside in West Virginia.

--You must not be deemed “mentally incompetent” by the court.

--You must not be under felony (including treason and election bribery) conviction, probation, or parole.

--You must be age 18 or older (You may vote at age 17 in the primary, if you will turn 18 before the General election on Nov. 4.)

West Virginia’s Primary election will be held on May 13, the second Tuesday in May, as required by state law. Voters will have the opportunity to cast their vote on a full slate of candidates, including presidential, at that time.

This year, Republicans and Democrats each chose to select some or all of their delegates to their national conventions through a state convention. While the Republican state convention was held on Tuesday, Feb. 5, the Democratic convention will be held on June 13-14. The Mountain Party will hold a convention in July to select its nominees for governor and president.

For the first time, independent voters and voters who marked “no party affiliation” on their voter registration form will be able to vote Republican, Democrat, or Mountain Party in the primary, May 13. These voters must ask for the Republican, Democrat or Mountain Party ballot when casting their vote.

Citizens can register to vote by visiting the county clerk or going to to download a voter registration form.

If you are not registered, you do have 72 days to exercise this right, but time will slip by quickly. Make sure that the voice of Calhoun County is recognized on May 13.
