As you may be aware, there is currently a contested election proceeding underway regarding the 2019 Town Council election in Harpers Ferry which I have followed with great interest. While true contested elections at any level in our state are relatively rare, the current case in Harpers Ferry provides a good example of why the governing legislation regarding this process should be updated. Even the Secretary of State was compelled to intervene in the case because of the gravity of the procedure and the issues at hand.
