Upshur County -

The November election is a month away and the issue of whose name will appear on the ballot for Upshur County sheriff is still up in the air.

The runner-up in the Republican primary election, David Taylor, has filed an appeal with the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals.

Taylor lost the primary election to Chief Deputy Mike Kelley and then challenged Kelley's eligibility, citing the Hatch Act.

The Hatch Act said anyone who handles federal money can't run for office.

Kelley removed his name from the November ballot before the Upshur County Commission and circuit court ruled in his favor.

And the Upshur County Republican Executive Election committee replaced him with David Coffman, instead of David Taylor.

Now Taylor has asked the Supreme Court for expedited relief.

Taylor wants the Supreme Court to rule Kelley ineligible to run in the primary election and then declare him the winner and put his name on the November ballot.
