charlestown@herald-mail.com BOLIVAR, W.Va. - By a one-vote margin, Ed Hall became the new mayor of Bolivar Monday night after three provisional votes were accepted from last week's town election. Hall defeated Mayor Tim Collins with 115 votes compared to Collins' 114 votes. Collins was leading Hall by a 114-112 vote count in last Tuesday's election. But the election was too close to call because of four provisional ballots. Provisional ballots are ones recognized by pollworkers as possibly being illegal or having incorrect paperwork.
