Based on address and district information, a new online tool provides West Virginia residents with a sample ballot for this year’s primary election so they can prepare to make voting decisions in advance.

The Sample Ballot Lookup Tool was launched Tuesday by West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner. In a press release, Warner said he hopes the tool will allow residents to make more informed decisions.

“We are asking voters to take a little time to educate themselves before they go to vote to learn more about the candidates and the initiatives that will be on their ballot,” he said. “The online search tool for Sample Ballots is safe and accurate to use.”

This year, West Virginia’s primary election will be held May 14, with in-person early voting beginning May 1.

The deadline to register to vote in the primary election is April 23.
