Tyler County voters re-elected Republican Jack Hayes as Tyler County assessor during Tuesday's general election.

The race featured Democrat Michael Galluzzo challenging the incumbent Hayes.

With 100 percent of the precincts reporting unofficial totals, Hayes received 2,133 votes to Galluzzo's 1,053 votes.

"I'm glad it's over," Hayes said. "I want to thank the people of Tyler County for voting for me."

Voters also chose to keep their representation in the House of Delegates the same, as 6th District incumbent William Roger Romine of Sistersville received 1,956 votes to Democratic challenger Charlie Delauder's 1,207. Two write-in votes were cast in the county, which will be added to results from other counties in the district to decide the victor.

Several county officials ran unopposed during Tuesday's election, including: John E. Roberts, Democrat, magistrate receiving 2,013 votes; Charles "Pork" Smith, Republican, county commissioner, receiving 2,746 votes; D. Luke Furbee, Republican, prosecuting attorney, receiving 2,655 votes; Earl P. "Bob" Kendle Jr., Republican, sheriff, receiving 2,676 votes; Michael Griffin, Republican, magistrate, receiving 2,367 votes; Thomas E. Wince, Republican, surveyor, receiving 2,698 votes.

Final numbers show 3,316 individuals cast votes in the county, 53.69 percent of the 6,176 registered voters. A total of 793 took advantage of early voting over the course of a two-week span.
