Voters in South Congaree go to the polls Tuesday to chose a new mayor and a Town Council member.
Four people are running for mayor – former Mayor Andy Gambrell, Councilman Jerry Smith and political newcomers Brian Jackson and Josh Shumpert.
Three people are running for council – Jeff Boatwright, Jay Kates and Barbara Sox.
Winners in the nonpartisan contests will serve nearly three years.
Former Mayor Jerry McCormick and Councilman Richard Green resigned in May, citing frustration with infighting among town leaders.
Both quit shortly after a raid on Town Hall by FBI and SLED agents in which documents and other materials were taken. No explanation has been given other than no town money is missing.
Polls are open in the Lexington County town of 2,300 residents from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Tuesday at Ebenezer Pentecostal Holiness Church, 622 Colonial Drive.
