Kanawha County Clerk Vera McCormick was out of the office Wednesday and did not attend the meeting. Carper would like to discuss the issue with McCormick at one of the commission's upcoming meetings.
He suggested it be placed on the agenda for the Nov. 29 meeting or one shortly after that date.
"And I would strongly urge the clerk to contact the political parties to see where they stand on this," Carper said.
Kanawha County officials did not implement community voting this year because the clerk's office was busy dealing with back-to-back elections, he said.
About 16 percent of the county's 133,732 registered voters cast ballots early during the past election. That was down from about 20 percent in 2010, Carper said.
He believes the number of early voters be back up once community voting is implemented.
Community voting has been permitted in the past, but the state required that sites operate for the entire early voting period.
The new law would require the sites to operate for at least five days.
The commissioners also unanimously voted to certify the Nov. 6 election results. The county did not receive any calls for a recount in any of the races.
The results are now official and will be sent to the Secretary of State's Office.
