CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Secretary of State Mac Warner announces the launch of a secure military mobile voting solution for the May 8th Primary Election. Registered and qualified military voters that are currently deployed from participating counties are now able to vote on the secure mobile application and will continue being able to vote until polls are closed at 7:30 p.m. EST on Primary Election Day on May 8th. All that is needed for qualified, registered military personnel to cast their ballot is a compatible Apple or Android mobile device and an approved, validated State or Federal ID.
This pilot project – launched Friday, March 23rd – was originally limited to currently deployed military voters, spouses and their dependents that are registered to vote in two counties – Harrison County and Monongalia County. With the support of the County Clerks in both counties, the mobile voting application has also been offered to eligible UOCAVA voters in those two counties.
