Marmet's long-time mayor was re-elected, Pratt residents voted to sell the town's water system to West Virginia American Water and the town council race in Clendenin resulted in a tie that needs to be broken as a result of municipal elections Tuesday night.
In Marmet, long-time mayor Bill Pauley was reelected in a three-way race, receiving 211 votes. Voters gave challengers Robert Wells and Ruth Meadows 189 votes and 122 votes, respectively.
Tammy Kersey will be Marmet's new recorder, getting 274 votes to Jill Runion's 230.

Of Marmet's 1,187 registered voters, 535 cast ballots on Tuesday for a turnout of 45.07 percent.
Pratt residents voted overwhelmingly to sell the town's water system to West Virginia American Water in Tuesday's municipal election.
Voters approved the agreement, in which West Virginia American Water would close the town's treatment facility and pump that water to Charleston, 153-7. The next step for the agreement is for the West Virginia Public Service Commission to approve the deal.
However, a measure to increase term limits from two years to four years failed, with 77 residents voting "no," and 72 voting "yes."
Pratt town council members Chris Tincher, Kaye Ford and Charlotte Calhoun all won re-election. Tincher had 125 votes, Ford had 102 and Calhoun had 95. They will be joined by Herbert R. Hoover, Jr., who received 94 votes, and Eric Holcomb, who had 87 votes.
Pratt voters ousted Councilwoman Rose Perry, who received just 66 votes. Don Adams also ran for a town council slot and garnered 70 votes.
