  1. what must future reasons for requesting a mail-in ballot require. In 2020 covid-19 was justification enough. After covid, can things like work, or lack of transportation be reason enough to request a ballot?

      Check out House Bill 2814, the “Election Security, Access, and Modernization Act of 2021”, which was introduced on the House Floor on March 2nd. We support it, as it improves access to absentee voting options, making it easier for West Virginians to vote.
