An Independent Choice
April 17, 2010 - Joselyn King
The "R" or the "D"? That's the question posed to Independent voters this election year.
That's because in West Virginia, those registered as having no political affiliation - or "Independent" - may choose whether to vote a Democratic or Republican ballot.
But don't forget you have to request one ballot or the other, since pollworkers are prohibited from asking you which you prefer.Otherwise you'll receive only a non-partisan ballot with school board races on it.
The deadline to change party affiliation in West Virginia comes at the end of the day Tuesday, April 20. Early voting starts the following day, Wednesday, April 21.
The biggest problem for the Independent voter might just be deciding which ballot to vote this election year. Isn't wonderful to live in America, and West Virginia?
