Parkesburg Gazette is your Parkesburg Election Center! While other news sources have ignored local races, Parkesburg Gazette has been and will be here with your election coverage.
The local election season is upon us. This year Election Day is Tuesday, November 5, 2013. The off-year elections, held in odd-numbered years, feature rarely any election to a federal office.
The vast majority of these off-year elections are held at the local level: mayors, citizen initiatives, and other local public offices. Off-years may also feature a number of special elections to fill vacancies in various offices.
As in years past, the serious lack of news coverage could be the fact that many Parkesburg and Octorara Area election results could be called before the first vote is even cast. Parkesburg Gazette is working to change this trend.
