The primary election will be held May 14, with in-person early voting from May 1 to May 11.

West Virginia residents who live overseas, are deployed abroad for military service or have certain disabilities may be eligible to receive an absentee mail-in ballot.

Mail-in ballots must be requested by May 8, six days before the primary election. They must be mailed and postmarked by May 14, and received by election officials by May 19 in order to count.
