CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia is making it easier for residents to be informed about state election laws.
Residents can now download an electronic version of the West Virginia Election Law codebook on the Kindle and devices with a free Kindle application.
Secretary of State Natalie Tennant says the Kindle edition will take an important but bulky codebook out of law libraries and put it into the hands of everyday West Virginians.
The Kindle edition includes several federal election laws, including the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Help America Vote Act of 2002. It costs less than $1.
The paper edition can be purchased from the Secretary of State's Office for $25.
