CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia is preparing to update its voter registration rolls.

More than 355,000 voters soon will receive notifications from county clerks seeking updated information. The notifications will be sent to voters who may have changed their addresses or who haven't cast ballots for two federal election cycles.

Secretary of State Natalie Tennant says in a news release that the process ensures voter rolls are accurate.

Voters who don't fill out and return the notifications to their county clerks will be placed on a list of inactive voters. But they will remain registered to vote and can vote in the 2014 elections.

Federal law requires the cancellation of voter registration if a voter remains inactive for two federal election cycles.
