Voting Registers History[edit | edit source]

West Virginia voting registers are valuable in helping you find ancestors in other records such as naturalizations, censuses, and passenger lists. Voting lists usually record the name of the voter, country or state of birth, race, age, street address, length of residence, whether native or naturalized, date of naturalization, and court where the naturalization occurred. Some counties have saved their voter registration lists, and others have not.
