Colleton County candidates will compete in run-off election

Right now, there is no clear winner in the special election for a Colleton County council seat.

The Director of Voter Registration tells us the winner needs at least 50-percent of the vote, which none of the six candidates had.

That means the top two candidates will face off in a runoff election.

Those candidates are Philip Taylor Sr. and Richard Wood.

The runoff election is scheduled for October 18th.

The special election was to fill the seat held by Floyd Buckner who passed away this summer.
