HB 4246 (Municipal Elections)
I have introduced HB 4246 (Political Subdivisions Committee), which would allow citizens in municipalities to vote on holding their future municipal elections on the state general election day.
Holding municipal elections on the state general election day would increase voter participation in municipal elections and also save money.
Some West Virginia municipalities already are doing this, and HB 4246 would allow voters in the municipalities who do not do this to also choose to do this.
