Two Green Party voters requested absentee ballots, as did 34 independents. Only one Libertarian requested an absentee ballot in 2008. One Socialist and 34 independents voted by mail, as did 322 no-party voters, according to the figures.
Tuesday was the last day to register to vote in West Virginia, and although McCormick isn't sure how many people came through the office, she said it was a busy day.
"We had people lined up out the door and down the street."
McCormick said she hadn't seen a turnout to register to vote that large in years.
"We're been really busy the last two weeks with people coming in and registering to vote," she said.
Many people also came down to the Kanawha County Voters Registration office on Quarrier Street to change their addresses or their names, she said.
McCormick and the employees in the office also are preparing for early voting, which begins Wednesday. They expect a large turnout.
"The first day of early voting is always busy," she said.
The next few days of early voting are also "steady," she said.
"We averaged about 1,000 to 1,200 early votes per day in 2008," she said.
