§3-2-1. Permanent voter registration law; uniform system of voter


(a) This article, providing a permanent and uniform system for

the registration of the voters of the state of West Virginia, may

be cited as the "Permanent Voter Registration Law."

(b) A permanent voter registration system is hereby

established which shall be uniform in its requirements throughout

the state and all of its subdivisions. No voter so registered

shall be required to register again for any election while

continuing to reside within the same county, unless the voter's

registration is canceled as provided in this article.

(c) A person who is not eligible or not duly registered to

vote shall not be permitted to vote at any election in any

subdivision of the state, except that such a voter may cast a

"provisional" or "challenged" ballot as provided in this chapter if

the voter's eligibility or registration is in question, and such

"provisional" or "challenged" ballot may be counted only if a

positive determination of the voter's eligibility and proper

registration can be ascertained.
