100,000+ New WV Voters Registered in Two Years; There were 4,057 in Harrison County

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | January 01, 2019
WV Secretary of State Mac Warner announced today there have been 101,542 new voters registered since he took office less than two years ago. A county-by-county breakdown can be found HERE.
 
Warner’s administration took office on January 16, 2017. Warner said his immediate interest as the state’s chief election officer was in building a working relationship with the state’s 55 county clerks to register new voters while deleting duplicate, outdated, deceased or convicted felons off the state’s voter files.
 
“One of the best ways to restore confidence in our election process is to make sure that every registered voter is alive and eligible to vote,” Warner said. “We want everyone to know that every vote counts and that every vote is properly counted.”
 
Warner said during the same 23-month period, there have been a total of 106,486 duplicate, outdated, deceased or convicted felon voter files deleted statewide. The Secretary of State’s ongoing effort to compare voter databases with other states and to work with federal agencies, like the Social Security Administration and the Bureau of Prisons, helps keep voter rolls accurate.
 
Of the 101,542 new voter registrations during his administration, Warner said 31,034 of them were by eligible high school seniors, most of whom Warner believes voted in their very first General Election last month.
