§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.
