WV Secretary of State Warns of Misleading Letter

Tuesday was the last day for voter registration for West Virginia's May primary.

Now the secretary of state's office is warning about a letter you might've received, describing it as misleading.

Wood County Clerk Mark Rhodes says the office received calls from citizens concerned they won't be able to vote unless they fill out this voter registration form from the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.

The mailer does list Tuesday as the correct deadline for registration and includes a voter registration card and a pre-paid return envelope.

Rhodes followed up, calling this national non-profit foundation.

"They're just looking at elections, election law, they're trying to make sure that everybody that wants to vote can vote and that they're registered properly," says Rhodes.

Rhodes says Wood County already has a system to check voter registration information every two years.

The only time a voter needs to update their information is if they move, change their name or wish to change political parties.

He says filling out this mailer doesn't hurt anything.
