charlestown@herald-mail.com CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - Saying voting polls are practically a "sacred place," Jefferson County's Prosecuting Attorney told county officials Thursday that food should not be delivered to poll workers during elections. Michael D. Thompson's comments were the latest in an ongoing controversy about Jefferson County Clerk Jennifer Maghan's decision to provide lunches to 155 poll workers during a June 25 pension bond election. Maghan said she paid the $1,952 catering bill with her own money, but wanted to be reimbursed for the meals from the county's voter registration fund.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - Voters used to the same old polling places have had to adapt this year. About a dozen polling places changed in Washington County, starting with the Sept. 12 primaries. Washington County Election Director Dorothy Kaetzel said voters received notices of their polling places, but some didn't pay attention and called to ask questions. Because the county is expanding, the board of elections added four precincts. The county now has 50 precincts at 49 polling places.

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. - Considering her husband waited 2 1/2 hours to vote Tuesday morning at James Rumsey Technical Institute, Karen Martin was pretty happy with where she was standing outside the school about 90 minutes before the polls closed. Martin said her husband, Leon, was off work for the day so his extended wait at Precinct 39, beginning at 8:30 a.m., didn't pose a problem. The couple voted at different times because of her in-home day care business and "somebody had to stay with the kids," said Martin, whose daughter came with her to the polls.

Washington County's legislative delegation in Annapolis will shrink from eight to six after the 2014 elections to reflect redrawn legislative districts based on the 2010 census. Although the changes have been in the works for some time, the Washington County Board of Elections this month sent out about 52,000 mailers to county voters whose polling place, precinct and/or district has changed. “Anytime we do a change ... that affects a voter's election district or how they are represented, we are required to send out notification,” said Kaye E. Robucci, election director of the Washington County Board of Elections.

The bill, which was cross-filed in the Senate by Sen. Ronald N.
