Early voting underway in Salem regarding marijuana ordinance

SALEM, W.Va. – Early voting is underway in Salem to vote on whether or not to decriminalize marijuana inside city limits.

Early voting began last Wednesday May 22, and goes until Saturday, June 1. According to city manager Ronnie Davis, voter turnout has been low, so far.

In April, a federal judge ordered the city to put the measure back on the ballot after the city removed it. The city cited concerns that the ordinance would not likely stand up against existing state law, if the measure were to pass.

After early voting concludes, Salem voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, June 4th. Polls will be open at United Methodist Church on Main St. and at Salem Town Hall from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
