CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - It will be easier for West Virginians to register to vote and the list of who can vote in West Virginia should be more accurate because of two bills recently passed at the behest of Secretary of State Natalie Tennant.
West Virginians will be able to register online to vote if they already have a digital signature on file with a state agency, like the Division of Motor Vehicles.
Another bill makes it easier for county clerks to clear dead people from voting lists. Currently a clerk needs an official obituary, a death certificate or a sworn statement from a family member to remove someone from a voting list. Clerks will now be able to use "other writings" like a newspaper article or a message from the post office.
