WVCCE Launches Campaign to Inform West Virginians That They May Have Been Removed from the Voter Rolls
WVCCE has launched a program to inform 20,000 West Virginians across the state that their names may have been removed from the voter rolls through a new direct mail campaign. The campaign communicates to West Virginians whose names have been removed from the voter rolls according to data provided by the Secretary of State. The campaign encourages these individuals to double check their registration status. If they remain eligible to vote, the mailers provide information on how to re-register so they may vote in this year’s elections. More
