FAIRMONT — Six municipalities in Marion County held their elections Tuesday to elect mayors, council members and recorders for the next term.

Fairview, Farmington, Monongah, Rivesville, White Hall and Worthington all held their municipal elections Tuesday. All results are unofficial until council can canvass the votes.

Guy Ward defeated incumbent Jesse Corley for mayor of White Hall. Ward received 89 votes, and Corley received 63 votes.
