WESTON, W.Va. – When Lewis County voters head to the polls, they will have several decisions to make.
Both Democrats and Republicans will be deciding on who will face off in the state’s new 2nd Congressional District. On the Republican side, longtime 1st District Congressman David McKinley and incumbent 2nd District Rep. Alex Mooney are vying to see who may have a chance to keep their seat in Congress. There are three other newcomers in the race as well. Democrats will be choosing between Barry Wendell, from Monongalia County, and Angela Dwyer of Berkeley County.
There are no major contested partisan races on the county level.
All Lewis County voters will be participating in the non-partisan Board of Education race. Incumbents James Flesher, Mike Holden and David Bush are challenged by Vicki Kerrigan, former Sheriff Adam Gissy, Monika Weldon, Brianne Warner, Robert Smith, Laura Anderson and Bruce Heater. Three seats are up for grabs.
Sample ballots can be found on the West Virginia Secretary of State’s website.
