ST. GEORGE, S.C. (WCBD) – The Dorchester County Board of Elections & Voter Registration will hold a Runoff Election on Sept. 11 for the Dorchester County Council District 1 seat.
Candidates Margaret Goodwin and Harriet Holman took home 38.3% and 38.94% of the votes, respectively, and will appear on the Runoff ballot in September.
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.
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).
