CHARLESTON- After being hit with a devastating storm early last week, West Virginia is still feeling the effects of hurricane Sandy.  While not getting hit quite as hard as New York and New Jersey, West Virginia has joined a growing number of states extending Election Day. Madam Secretary of State, Natalie Tennent, made the announcement late Sunday night via her Twitter account. A press conference is scheduled Monday morning.

The so-called, "Frankenstorm", dumped two feet of snow in some areas of the mountain state and many residents are still begging to get utilities restored.  Election officials in affected states have had to weight the risk of vote tampering with the need to let everyone's voice be heard.  "It's important that everyone has a chance to vote," said Tennant.  "As of 11:00 AM Thursday 97,043 have already voted early!  That's great news, but with the storm, there are so many West Virginians that still need to vote.  Therefore, we are extending Election Day to accommodate as many people as possible."

Chad P. Unch, Lincoln County election worker told TheDiggerer "Since there aren't that many West Virginians who identify themselves as Republican, we are setting Tuesday aside for Independents and Republicans.  That shouldn't take long, but we need to get them out of the way.  Wednesday will be the day for Democrats to go to the ballot.  This'll allows teachers, union members, lawyers, and senior citizens an extra day to prepare.  It will also allow ACORN other civic-minded groups to gather up homeless and local 'undocumented workers' and carpool them to polling locations.

"We want to be sure Democrats have every chance to vote for Obama and all his fellow Dem's, like Nick Joe Rahall, Joe Manchin, Earl Ray Tomblin, Darrell McGraw and such."

The extended days may not affect all of West Virginia.  Please check with your local county office to verify voting times and dates.
