Morgan County clerk sees ‘smooth’ general election as canvass ends

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — Morgan County Clerk Kimberly Nickles says the General Election went ‘smoothly’ as the county wraps up canvassing.

She told the Panhandle News Network the voting turnout was a nice surprise in the county with 2,700 early ballots cast compared to 475 early ballots cast in the June Primary Election.

Nickles said Morgan County officials are set to reconvene Tuesday afternoon to button up the canvass process ahead of county offices being closed Wednesday for Veterans Day.

“It went pretty good. We are going to finish up today (Tuesday), we are not completely done. We have to run the reports and the commissioners have to sign off on them. Everything went great,” she said.

58 percent of Morgan County’s registered voters took part in the General Election. Nickles said the majority of those who turned out, believed the process went well.

“Ours went very smooth. We have gotten many compliments from the public and we really do appreciate that,” Nickles said.

“When you’re in the midst of that, you feel like nobody cares. It’s the good things that people say at the end that makes us feel it was all worth it.”
