CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Dunbar City Clerk Ross Harrison was not pleased with the low turnout in Saturday's city primary election.
Only 591, or less than 11 percent, of the 5,445 registered voters in Dunbar cast ballots.
"That's just sad," Harrison said.
Harrison blamed the low turnout on the fact that the election was on Easter weekend.
Terry Greenlee received 363 votes to Ramona Cerra Ward's 82 to receive the Democratic nomination for the mayor's race. Greenlee will face Republican Michael Hall in the general election on June 4.
Hall ran uncontested on the Republican ticket. He received 85 votes.
Both are hoping to replace Democrat Jack Yeager, who opted not to seek reelection.
Democrat Connie Fulknier received 350 votes in an uncontested race for the nomination for city clerk. She will face Harrison, who received 95 votes on the Republican ticket.
Harrison ran unopposed.
Two Democrats will advance to the general election for the First Ward seat. Pam Reynolds received 94 votes and incumbent R.J. "Rick" Fields received 66.
They will face Steve Arnott, who was the lone Republican running for the First Ward seat. Arnott received 37 votes.
