Marion County Pleased With Election Day Organization

Posted: Updated:

Election Day 2012 is over and in the books.

"I'm going to support anyone that gets elected," said Marion County Resident Alfred Corbin.

All iVotronic machines have been placed back in storage and floors have been swept at the Marion County Election Center.

The scene you would see now, is nothing compared to what it looked like Tuesday night.

"You go down to election center and you watch Janice Cosco's team," said Marion County resident Nick Fantasia. "The first polls came in about 7:45 and we were finished up last night at about 9:30. She's a rockstar."

Marion County Clerk Janice Cosco agrees.

"We have probably the best team in the whole state," she said. "Everyone works together. They have a job to do, they know what they are to do."

Cosco said it looks like an anthill on election night.

Marion County prides itself on its organization and its timeliness.

They finished counting the ballots on Tuesday at 9:20 P.M. and they were one of the first in North Central West Virginia to do so.

The election center has a drive through service where poll workers could unload the machines.

Organization made the process go smoothly, as the results arrived in two hours.

Ernie VanGilder defeated Joseph Manchin IV for Marion County Commission and Joe Carpenter was re-elected as Marion County Sheriff.

Getting out to vote is important to Marion County residents.

"Marion County voted over 50 percent," Fantasia said. "You take a look at that with the early voting numbers and people that came out to the polls. It showed a tremendous amount of excitement county wide."

Cosco thanks all of the voters who came out and her staff for working so hard.

After a hectic couple of months, she said it will be nice to relax until the next election.
