WV Vote-by-Mail Election a Success

West Virginia's first vote-by-mail election was a success.

Morgantown City Clerk Linda Little says a total 3,648 ballots were cast in Tuesday's municipal elections. She tells the Dominion Post that's 2,181 more than were cast during the 2009 election, when voters had to go to physical polling places.

The mail election was a pilot project approved by the Secretary of State's Office.

Unofficial results showed the new Morgantown City Council will be a mix of incumbents and fresh faces come July.

According to the initial tally, four incumbents are keeping their seats. Two had run unopposed.

The ballots were mailed out in early April. Drop boxes for those that weren't mailed back closed at 8 p.m. Tuesday, and they were delivered to City Hall within a half-hour.
