In neighboring Greenbrier County voters elected a new sheriff.
Democrat Jan Cahill beat Republican incumbent Jim Childers by about 2,000 votes.
Cahill retired earlier this year from the West Virginia State Police where he served as a trooper and captain for almost 30 years.
He says he's looking forward to bringing change that the voters came out and asked for.
It's very satisfying, very exciting. I'm a first timer and it went my way. There's been a lot of buzz about this particular race, a lot more than I was expecting. The voters want a change and they stepped up to the plate and came out tonight and expressed that."
Cahill says he is looking forward to bringing back the multi-unit drug task force that was dissolved in the county a few years ago.
