To receive an absentee ballot, you must apply for one. Due to Covid-19 any eligible voter can vote early with an absentee ballot. Covid-19 qualifies as “other medical reason which keeps me confined” when selecting your reason for applying for an absentee ballot.
Please do not submit multiple applications, you need only apply once by whichever of the following is most convenient for you:
You can apply online at the Secretary of State’s secure online portal here: https://sos.wv.gov/elections/Pages/AbsenteeApplication.aspx

What if I get an absentee ballot and want to vote in person?
If you change your mind, take the absentee ballot you received and turn it in to the poll clerk while checking-in at either early voting in the courthouse or your polling place on election day in order to vote a regular ballot in-person that is counted on election day. If you do not turn in your absentee, you will be required to vote a provisional ballot that will not be counted until Canvass when it can be determined that your absentee was never returned.
