BUCKHANNON — All eyes were on Upshur County Clerk Carol Smith and her staff Tuesday night as the polls closed at 7:30 p.m.

Smith said the process went relatively smoothly, all things considered.

Buckhannon City Council members, city recorder Randy Sanders and mayor-elect Robbie Skinner will take their seats July 1, 2020 along with Upshur BOE members Dr. Tammy Samples and Pat Long. That’s because the city council and Upshur Board of Education races were nonpartisan.

However, all other candidates who were successful in their primary races Tuesday night — either Republican or Democrat — will move on to face off against candidates of the other party in the general election, which is set for Tuesday, Nov. 3.

City recorder, Randy Sanders, said he’s happy he will retain his current post as city recorder.
