GREENBRIER COUNTY CLERK
GREENBRIER COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA
GOING TO VOTE
|Elections are held every even year in the State of West Virginia, while presidential elections are held every four years. Polls open at 6:30 a.m. and do not close until 7:30 p.m. You can request up to 3 hours off from your employer, without taking leave or a deduction of pay, if you do not have at least 3 hours before or after work that you can go to the polls to vote.|
|Before running for office, you will need to decide which office best suits your qualifications. All candidates for county offices must be qualified voters. Some offices have special requirements in order to be able to run. They may include, but are not limited to, age and residency. Residence for voting and candidacy means where you live the majority of the time. Being away temporarily, such as for school, temporary work assignments, weekend or winter home, may not end your residence in a place. However,
your residence is not a business address, an extra place you own or a place you stay occasionally. The deadline for establishing a residence varies from office to office. To find out more, visit http://www.wvsos.com/elections/offices/officesdetail.htm.
The period for filing for candidates wishing to run for office is from January 14 until midnight on January 26. You must complete a certificate of announcement and return it to either the Secretary of State for all offices on the ballot in more than one county or to the County Clerk's office for all offices on the ballot for only Greenbrier County. You may mail your certificate of announcement and filing fee but it must be received during the filing period or bear a legible US postmark with a date no later than January 26. The candidate must also fill out a personal financial disclosure with the WV Ethics Commission within 10 days of filing their certificate of announcement. The period for disclosing personal finances is between January 14 and February 5.
After you have decided on the office you want to run for, have completed and returned the certificate of announcement and filed your personal finance disclosure, you must submit the appropriate filing fee. The filing fee is 1% of the salary of the position. These salaries may be obtained by contacting the County Clerk at 304.647.6603.
If you should change your mind about running for office, you may withdraw by sending a signed and notarized statement of withdrawal. Check with the Election Office for deadline for withdrawal.
Positions on the ballot are drawn on Tuesday following the deadline. The drawing will take place in the Greenbrier County Clerk's office at 9:00 a.m. Check with the Election Office for the date of drawing of the ballot.
