CROSS LANES, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia residents arrived in droves to cast ballots on the first day of early in-person voting Wednesday, less than two weeks before the November election.
Long lines were reported in several polling places throughout the state.
Todd Dorcas waited for more than an hour to vote in his hometown of Cross Lanes.
He says he voted early because of the nation’s turbulent political climate.
In Charleston, the line at a downtown polling place office wrapped around a city block.
Early voting was available at nearly 100 locations in all 55 counties.
The early voting period runs through Oct. 31.
