W.Va. updating voter registration information
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia is preparing to update its voter registration rolls.
More than 355,000 voters soon will receive notifications from county clerks seeking updated information. The notifications will be sent to voters who may have changed their addresses or who haven't cast ballots for two federal election cycles.
The process will help ensure accuracy of voter rolls, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant said in a news release.
Voters who don't fill out and return the notifications to their county clerks will be placed on a list of inactive voters. But they will remain registered to vote and can vote in the 2014 elections.
Federal law requires the cancellation of voter registration if a voter remains inactive for two federal election cycles.
