In-Person Voter Registration

Residents may register to vote at the Berkeley County Voter Registration office, at 400 West Stephen Street, First Floor, Suite 105, Martinsburg, WV 25401. To register, bring one of the following identifications:

  • West Virginia Driver’s License or West Virginia Photo ID card that reflects your current date of birth and current Berkeley County physical address. NOTE: A Post Office box will not suffice as proof of residential address.
  • No valid form of Photo ID?   No problem! Just bring a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, or any government document that provides proof of residency in Berkeley County and lists your name and physical address. NOTE: Without a West Virginia Driver’s License or a West Virginia photo ID with you, it will take 10 days for you to receive your voter registration card.
