West Virginia To Offer Online Voting For Some

West Virginia To Offer Online Voting For Some:

A pilot program to allow West Virginians, serving in the military, the opportunity to vote online passed the Legislature unanimously on Thursday during the special session.

House Bill 406 now needs West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin's signature in order to become law.

The legislation would also extend the online voting option to any West Virginian living abroad.

State officials say there are more than 42,000 West Virginians living overseas that are eligible to vote.

In the 2008 , only about 4,200 cast absentee ballots in the general election.
