HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. (WDVM) — A judge with West Virginia’s 23rd Judicial Circuit Court decided to reverse the decision made by the Harpers Ferry Contest Tribunal to not count 4 provisional ballots in the Harpers Ferry’s 2019 municipal election.

On June 11, Harpers Ferry held an election for the office of the mayor, recorder and five at-large council seats. The results of the election was contested by Nancy Case and Deborah McGee after four provisional ballots were thrown out due to typographical errors.
