Charleston, W.Va. – Voters in dozens of municipalities in West Virginia will go to the polls once again this month, this time to choose the leaders of their town or city.
Municipalities like Shinnston, Keyser, Grant Town, and Nitro have their elections on June 5 and have already begun their early voting period.
Other municipalities like Barrackville, Franklin, Martinsburg, Oceana, and 17 others began their early voting period on May 30 and will hold their municipal elections on June 12.
“People in these municipalities will be going to the polls to vote for people they know very well and who might even be their neighbors,” Secretary of State Natalie E. Tennant said. “For the people in these municipalities, it could be the second time in less than a month that they have exercised their right to vote. I hope citizens realize that local elections are just as important as national or state elections, and that they should always make sure that their voice is heard. One vote could make all the difference, especially in a municipal election.”
