Case Date:
Case Information:
This suit arises from a close municipal election in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, held on June 11, 2019. The parties were candidates for five seats on the Harpers Ferry Town Council. The petitioners seek judicial review of an order of the Circuit Court of Jefferson County that overturned an order of the Harpers Ferry Election Contest Tribunal and found that four provisional ballots cast should be counted. In cross assignments of error, the respondents assert that members of the Harpers Ferry Election Contest Tribunal should have been disqualified and that Respondent Nancy Case had standing to challenge the election contest.
