West Virginia Secretary of State Natalie Tennant’s office is sending postcards to residents who may be eligible to vote but haven’t registered.

The deadline to register to vote in the general election is Oct. 18. The election is Nov. 8.

The postcards are also being sent to help ensure that the state’s voter rolls are up to date. The mailing list was compiled by comparing statewide voter registration records from the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles.

The mailing is part of the state’s membership with the Electronic Registration Information Center, a nonprofit organization that works to help states improve voter roll accuracy and increase voter registration access.

Anyone who believes a postcard was sent in error should check voter registration status at . For further questions, contact the local county clerk or Tennant’s office at (304) 558-6000.
