September 30th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Early voting is currently underway for the special election set for Saturday, Oct. 7, for the “Roads to Prosperity” amendment, and voter turnout has been “very low” in Mineral County.
The amendment calls for the issuance of up to $1.6 billion in bonds to fund road construction throughout the state of West Virginia. According to Mineral County clerk Lauren Ellifritz, since early voting started on Friday, Sept. 22, they have only had 80 voters cast their ballots. West Virginia secretary of state Mac Warner said Monday a total of 5,000 citizens have voted statewide thus far. Early voting will continue through Wednesday, Oct. 4, in the county commission room in the rear of the Mineral County Courthouse. Those wishing to vote early may do so between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays, and between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30.
