“The vote is the most powerful instrument ever devised by man for breaking down injustice and destroying the terrible walls which imprison men because they are different from other men”  Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President, United States

Early Voting for the 2014 primary election has begun for registered Marion County voters, as well as voters throughout West Virginia. In Marion County, early voting will be available in Mannington, at Mannington City Hall, and in downtown Fairmont, at the J. Harper Meredith Building, Room 104. Both locations will be open Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm, and Saturday from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Regardless of precinct, early voters can vote at either location.

The purpose of a primary election is to narrow down the field of candidates before the general election takes place in November. For those not participating in Marion County’s early voting, the primary election will be held on Tuesday, May 13th, from 6:30am to 7:00pm. If you don’t know your polling precinct or where it is located, you may call the Marion County Clerk’s office at 304-367-1862.

So, why should you vote?

· It’s your right. Many before us had to fight very hard for their right to vote and even today, there are some places in the world where people are still fighting for their right to do the same, so vote for those who can’t yet do the same.

· It’s your money. Elected officials will decide how to spend your taxes, so do your research, and vote for those that have a similar point of view as you do.

· Your one vote really can make a difference. There is power in numbers, and when we vote and get our family members to vote, it can truly make a difference. If you don’t vote for what you believe in, others will, and you may not like the outcome.

· Because your children can’t. Since no one under 18 has the right to vote, we have to do it for them. Voting is how we make our concerns about schools, safety, housing, and other issues heard. When we vote, we are looking out for our kids, and their futures.

· To effect change. It was through elections that we voted in officials who were champions for civil rights. Voting is your chance to make a difference in your own life and those of the people around you.

How do you register to vote?

· If you aren’t already registered to vote, we strongly recommend that you do so. As long as you’re over 18 years of age and have photo I.D, you can register to vote at your local DMV

  • Taylor Downs was easy to talk to (I do not speak the legal language well!) and was very upfront and honest about the entire process of my case. He kept me updated as the case progressed, and answered my relentless questions. The end result was a favorable settlement that I’m not sure could have been any better with anyone else. In short, go see Taylor if you have a case. Don’t be intimidated to go seek his help, he won’t blow your brains out with “legal speak”.


  • Being referred to Taylor was the best thing I could have asked for. Taylor and staff are very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend them to anyone.


  • If I ever have to go through it again I would definetly call Taylor right away. The group was so helpful through my situation and handled everything that needed to be done. They made a stressful situation a stress free situation. With Taylor you dont have to worry about one thing. Definietly would recomend to anyone.
