CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia elections officials will send postcards this week to nearly 170,000 registered voters to confirm their addresses.
Secretary of State Mac Warner said voters can respond by scanning a QR code on a postcard, online at ovr.sos.wv.gov or by mailing a paid card to their county clerk.
The cards will be sent to registered voters who have changed their address with the Department of Motor Vehicles or the post office or who have not voted or updated their voter registration in the past four years.
Voters will remain “active” if their postcard is returned. Those whose cards are not returned or are returned “undeliverable” will be classified as “inactive”. They will still be able to vote in the next two federal election cycles, but if the address remains unconfirmed and the voter does not vote in a state or local election, registration may be canceled. , Warner’s office said.
Elections officials will send postcards to 169,417 voters identified after the November 2020 General Election, Warner said.
