2021 Election Results

Scroll down for results.


Preliminary results of the March 2, 2021 election will be posted on this page as results are received from polling places. Election results are not final until after canvassing (March 8) and certification (March 10). (Click here to view results from the canvass.)

Vote Tallying and Reporting

Elkins uses paper ballots, which are counted by hand at each polling place after polls close at 7:30 p.m. After counting is complete, poll workers seal the ballots inside the ballot boxes until the canvass (March 8). Election night results are reported on the basis of a signed, sworn certificate of results completed by poll workers.

Poll workers prepare three of these certificates, which are then signed by all four poll workers present at each polling place. One certificate is posted on the door of the polling place immediately after counting is complete; one is sent, under seal, to the W. Va. Secretary of State; and one is opened by the city clerk on election night to report preliminary results to the public.

When to Expect Results

The 2021 election has seen higher than usual turnout during absentee and early voting, so results will likely not become available for announcement for at least an hour or two after polls close.

Results will be posted on this page first, then flagged on the below channels:
