Mail-in primary filings rejected in Morgan County

February 01, 2008|By TRISH RUDDER

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Two mail-in candidacy filings for the 2008 election were rejected by the Morgan County Clerk's office because they were not notarized.

Kevin Boles filed as a Democratic candidate for the Morgan County Commission seat in Magisterial District 2, and Frank Strader filed as a candidate for a seat on the Morgan County Board of Education, which is a nonpartisan election.

Debra Kesecker, Morgan County Clerk, said she called the Secretary of State's office and was told the forms were incomplete without notarization and could not be accepted.

Boles said Wednesday he is "leaning toward" running as an Independent candidate for the Commission seat rather than a write-in.

He said his application forms must be submitted 30 days before the May 13 Primary Election.
