Primary elections

West Virginia recognizes four political parties: Democratic, Republican, Mountain, and Libertarian. Primaries are held by the political parties in order to nominate a candidate to run in the general election. Primaries are held on the second Tuesday in May, every two years.


A candidate who wishes to run for election, but does not belong to any of the four parties recognized in West Virginia must gather signatures on a nominating petition and will not run in a party primary election.[1]

Results

Statewide results can be found on the Secretary of State website.
