 Tennant Hosts Live Webcast From Secretary of State's Office

5/4/2010

    Charleston, W.Va. – Secretary of State Natalie E. Tennant, along with members of the Elections Division and Outreach Staff, hosted a live webcast Wednesday morning from the State Capitol. 

    The webcast will contained information about voting systems used in West Virginia, as well as the Secretary of State’s plan for assisting county clerks on Election Day and a personal message from Secretary Tennant to voters and poll workers. 

    “It was all about getting information out to voters,” Secretary Tennant said. “Maybe someone couldn't watch right at 10 in the morning, but they will be able to watch the webcast again on our website. They can watch it at 3 in the afternoon or 10 at night on their laptop. This is the technology that's available to us, and we need to use it.” 

    This was the second live webcast for the Secretary of State’s Office. On January 30, the last day to file as a candidate, the Secretary of State’s Office produced four live segments as candidates filled out their paperwork. Secretary Tennant interviewed candidates as they filed and members of the Election Division about what the requirements were for candidates and how voters could find out who was running for office. 

    More than 1,200 people watched the live webcast on the last day of candidate filing.
