Secretary of State Natalie Tennant may have violated state law on Wednesday as she led a group to the Kanawha County Voter Registration office for early voting.
According to Kanawha County Clerk Vera McCormick, Tennant led a group of about 30 supporters to the courthouse Wednesday morning. She says members of the group cheered for Tennant for a brief moment and Tennant thanked them for their support. They then went inside to cast their ballots.
State law prohibits any campaigning on the property of the county courthouse, any annex facilities or any other designated early voting locations.
Tennant is running for the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacated by retiring Sen. Jay Rockefeller.
