DELBARTON – Seven candidates are seeking reelection to the offices they now hold in the Town of Delbarton, but there is no competition nor party affiliation involved n the general election Tuesday, June 14.
As Town Clerk Kim Totten explained, this is a nonpartisan, general election to elect a mayor, a recorder and five members of Town Council. All of the candidates are incumbents.
John W. Preece, longtime mayor of the town, heads the official ballot along with Recorder Totten as they seek reelection.
The five council members up for reelection include Clifford Davis, Albert Totten, Mark Sizemore, Joe Crum and Jeremy Davis.
For many years, the towns of Delbarton, Matewan, Kermit and Gilbert held their elections on the same day, but changes occurred and some elect every four years instead of two years. The city of Williamson has always held its elections separate from the smaller municipalities.
Mingo County officials are not involved in the town elections.
Clerk Totten said the polling places will open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday with election returns to be tabulated at Delbarton town hall.
