Randolph County Election Results 2014

Posted: Updated:
In Randolph County, the races for County Commission and the Board of Education were the ones everyone was talking about.

For incumbent Chris See, who currently serves as commission president, the waiting game never gets easier.

"I was very nervous, actually. I was confident, in a way, but nervous more than anything. This will be my third time I've run for elections, and last time, I beat an incumbent, which I was more nervous this time," said See.

See defeated Lloyd Heckel, Mike Riggleman, and John "Andy" Burns, earning 1,186 votes.

As for the BOE race, it was an all-girls club, with current president Lisa Wamsley and challengers Janie Newlon and Donna Auvil winning those three seats. The women defeated incumbents Edward Tyre  and David Lee Keslong, Jr. Auvil said she put the race in fate's hands.

"What will be will be. I really wasn't that nervous all day," said Auvil. "I'm very humbled."

"It just feels great. I appreciate everyone that went out and voted and all of my supporters," said See.

Election officials say counting the ballots from the county's 27 precincts has been much easier since Personal Electronic Ballots - or PEBs - were introduced.
"Oh, it's so much faster! So much easier for us. We don't have to stay all night to count paper ballots," said ballot commissioner Sandra Godwin.

And as one election season ends for some, others know that another will be here before they know it. See will face Republican James Dean this fall.

"We've got another fight to go in November, so I'll get some rest here, and I'll be back in the fight for November," said See.

Other notable results include those for the House of Delegates (43rd District), in which Charles Kinnison and Mary Catherine Boltz defeated Lonnie Randall.
