In Person Voter Registration
Register to vote at our Voter Registration office, located at 400 West Stephen Street, 1st Floor, Suite 106, Martinsburg, WV 25401. Bring a West Virginia Driver’s License with you or a West Virginia picture ID card which reflects your current birth date and current Berkeley County physical address. NOTE: An address of a Post Office box will not suffice as proof of residential address.
In the event, you don’t bring a valid form of ID don’t worry – we can still register you! Just bring with you one of the following as proof of residency in Berkeley County; current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or any government document which reflects your name and physical address. Note: Without a West Virginia Driver’s License or a West Virginia picture ID with you, it will take 10 days for you to receive your voter registration card.
