West Virginia ballot news

West Virginia approves online voting for military personnel

CHARLESTON, West Virginia: A pilot program to allow online voting for military personnel, also known as H.B. 406 was unanimously approved by West Virginia Legislature. The bill requires that each participating county setup an online system in which military and overseas voters will be able to login and cast their ballot. According to state officials, the bill was developed in response to the "Military and Overseas Empowerment Act" which calls for better voting systems for military personnel. Before becoming law, however, the bill must be signed by Gov. Joe Manchin. Approximately 42,000 West Virginians are said to be eligible to vote online.[1][2]
