Absentee Ballot Information

Registered Voters in Monongalia County who will be out of town during the period of Early Voting thru Election Day or who are confined to their homes on Election Day and the entirety of the early voting period may apply for an absentee ballot no later than May 6, 2020.  Ballots are to be returned by mail and must be postmarked by the date of the election, May 12, 2020.  Military and Overseas Voters may take advantage of the online ballot delivery system by applying for an online absentee ballot using the separate Federal Post Card Application (FPCA).

You may submit your application by mail, fax or email (preferred method).  All applications must be signed in the handwriting of the voter.  Digital or electronic signatures are not valid.  Each voter must  submit a separate application.  It is not a requirement to submit an ID when applying for an absentee ballot.  Your ballot will be mailed thru the United States Postal Service once your signed application is received in our office.

Our office is taking the necessary precautions to protect our staff as well as the general public as we prepare for the Primary Election.  As a general rule, elections are social events, so “social distancing” is difficult when planning for the training of election officials, preparing precincts, assisting voters at early voting and on Election Day, as well as handling and processing the ballots.  The staff of the County Clerk’s Office is committed to ensuring this election is processed with the same dedication to transparency, access and efficiency as we have with all other elections.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to process the increase in the number of absentee ballots for this election.

Special rules apply to the 2020 Primary Election:

If you fear voting in person due to the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may apply for an Absentee Ballot using the standard application.  Check box 1 for illness which keeps me confined.
