Mon County early voting is kicking off

A total of 159 ballots were cast Wednesday, on what Monongalia County Clerk Carye Blaney described as a “very slow” first day of early voting.

The pace picked up slightly on Thursday, with another 251 voters getting out to one of the county’s five early voting locations, including:

-Mountaineer Mall, 5000 Green Bag Road, Unit D-20

-Mason Dixon Park, 79 Buckeye Road, Core

-Westover Community Building, 399 Crowl St., Westover

-WVU Alumni Center, 1 Alumni Drive, Morgantown

-Fort Pierpont, Suite No. 102, 200 Fort Pierpont Drive, Morgantown

-Early voting is available 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday through June 6.

Voters have until June 3 to request an absentee ballot from Blaney’s office. All West Virginia voters have the option of voting absentee due to the COVID-19 health crisis.
