CHARLESTON, W.Va. -

Imagine holding all of West Virginia's election laws in one hand.  Secretary of State Natalie Tennant announced on Thursday, March 8 that it is possible now that the codebook is available on Kindle.

"This will take a very bulky but very important codebook out of law libraries and put it into the hands of everyday West Virginians," Secretary Tennant said.

To download the document, go to Amazon.com and enter "West Virginia and Federal Election Laws 2011." The Kindle edition of the codebook costs less than a dollar, is searchable, and readers can leave bookmarks at important locations.

"The last few years have shown just how important of a document the Election Law codebook is," said Tennant. "Hopefully citizens will download the codebook and then when they hear a certain section being referenced in the media or in legislation, they can read it for themselves and become more informed about elections in West Virginia."

The new codebook, which was released in print in February, is also available for sale in its paper format in the Secretary of State's Office for $25.

The Kindle version of the codebook does not include all of the case law annotations provided in the hard copy, but there are features that are exclusive to the Kindle version.

The codebook can be downloaded to Kindle here.
