ST. GEORGE, S.C. (WCBD) – The Dorchester County Board of Elections & Voter Registration will hold a Special Primary Election on Aug. 28, for the Dorchester County Council District 1 seat.
The District 1 seat was most recently held by Councilman Willie Davis, who held the seat from 1991 until his passing, according to spokeswoman Tiffany Norton.
Todd Billman, Executive Director of the Dorchester County Board of Elections & Voter Registration said, “I was shocked by the news of County Councilman Willie Davis’ passing. Because of this sad news, we must reopen filing and conduct a Special Primary."
Four Democrats are running in the primary on Tuesday: Joseph Cobin, Margaret Goodwine, Harriett Holman and Allen Stephens.
William Gadol is the only Republican candidate competing for the county council seat, so therefore no GOP primary will be held. His name will appear on the ballot on Election Day (Nov. 6).
The polls close at 7 p.m.
If necessary, runoffs will be on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
