Thousands of voters across North Central West Virginia have already cast their ballots during the first five days of the state’s early voting period for next week’s primary.

Harrison County clerk Susan Thomas tells The Exponent-Telegram of Clarksburg that an average of more than 265 residents have cast their ballots each day in the county ahead of the May 10 primary.

Lewis County clerk Cynthia Rowan says more than 100 people are casting their votes in the county each day.

She says she expects that most people who have tried early voting in the past now are consistently taking advantage of the opportunity.

The first day of early voting was April 27. Residents can visit early voting locations within their counties until 5 p.m. Saturday.
