The West Virginia Secretary of State is an elected office within the West Virginia state government. The secretary of state is responsible for overseeing the state's election process, including voter registration and election results reporting. West Virginia is one of only a handful of states that does not have a lieutenant governor. The secretary of state assumes many of the roles traditionally reserved for the lieutenant governor. The West Virginia Secretary of State is the smallest constitutional office in the state - physically, fiscally, and in terms of the number of staff. The duties of the office, though, are extensive. The primary responsibility of the secretary is to serve as the chief election officer. The "work horse" of the office is the business and licensing division, which registers, licenses, and keeps a database of all businesses, corporations, charities, notary publics, private investigators, and sports agents operating within West Virginia. The secretary also files public notices of all state agency meetings, sends official documents on behalf of the governor, and certifies gubernatorial proclamations by affixing the state seal and their signature to official documents. The salary for this office is $95,000/year.
