WV Code: §5-2-1 General Duties of the Secretary of State

"The secretary of state shall be the keeper of the seals of the state, keep a journal of executive proceedings, arrange and preserve all records and papers belonging to the executive department, be charged with the clerical duties of that department, and render to the governor, in the dispatch of the executive business, such service as he may require."


The Secretary of State has been assigned as the keeper of various other records, either by a constitutional provision or by statute.

Although these are not the Governor's papers, they are maintained in the Executive Records section.

Some of these documents are available online by using the Executive Journal Search.
