The 1916 United States presidential election in West Virginia took place on November 7, 1916, as part of the 1916 United States Presidential Election which was held throughout all contemporary 48 states. Voters chose eight representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

West Virginia was won by the Republican nominee, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Charles Evans Hughes of New York, and his running mate Senator Charles W. Fairbanks of Indiana. Hughes and Fairbanks defeated the Democratic nominees, incumbent Democratic President Woodrow Wilson and Vice President Thomas R. Marshall.

Hughes won the Mountain state by a very narrow margin of 0.94%. Despite Hughes' win in the state, a faithless electoral gave Wilson one electoral vote. This was the first time that West Virginia had a faithless elector and it would be the only time so until 1988. This was also the first time a losing Republican presidential candidate would win the state and the only one until John McCain won West Virginia in 2008.
