Policy on Obtaining Voter's Registration List
In accordance with WV Code 3-2-30, the Monroe County Clerk's is authorized to sell lists of the registered voters in Monroe County to be used for non-commercial use only.
We can provide these lists in several different ways. We can provide a complete list of names of all the registered voters in the county and we can also provide a list containing the names of voters in a specific party or in a specific precinct(s).
The list will include the following information; name of voter, mailing address, party affiliation, date of birth, voter status and the precinct in which the voter is registered. State law prohibits the Clerk's Office from providing the voter's phone number on such lists. The voter's status will be listed as "Active" or "Inactive". An active voter is a voter who has consistently voted in the past. An Inactive voter is a voter who may not have voted in the past few elections. As far as voting, there is no difference whatsoever in an Active or Inactive Voter. When an Inactive voter votes, his or her status is simply changed to Active by our staff.
Voter's list can be provided in paper or digital format. The cost for a paper list is one cent per voter name. A list in digital format costs one cent per name plus $10.00 for each disk required. The number of registered voters in the county varies almost daily. We suggest you contact the Clerk's Office for the fee for when you are ready to purchase a list. We generally can provide you with voter's list in 24 hours or less.
The County Clerk's Office works very had in keeping our voter list current. If you see someone's name on the list that has passed away, we kindly ask that you notify us. As hard as we try in keeping the list current, we may have inadvertently missed removing the name of someone who has passed.
To obtain a voter's list, please complete the following form and forward to us.
*Payment is due at the time you pick up your list.
