Election Contests and Ballot Measures

November 4, 2014 West Virginia General Election

West Virginia

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

In addition to the office contest shown on our ballots, you may find circuit judges, recreation district, county and local offices contests on the ballots you will receive at the polls. Due to our limited resources we were unable to cover those contests.
