Lowcountry Election Day preview; list of Nov. 5 races

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

We are one week away from Election Day in the Lowcounty.

Next week registered voters will have their chance to cast their votes in elections throughout the Tri-County area.

There are several cities and towns that will have mayor and council elections. They include Awendaw, the  Isle of Palms, Lincolnville, Mount Pleasant and McClellanville.

In the City of Charleston, voters will cast their ballots for city council, while out in Ravenel, Summerville and Moncks Corner voters will head to the polls to vote for three seats on town council.

In Dorchester County, voters will also have a say on a special tax referendum which would lower property taxes but increase sales tax by one percent.

And happening on Tuesday in Mount Pleasant, voters can meet the candidates hoping to become the town's next mayor. There's a candidate forum at council chambers in Mount Pleasant Town Hall on Anne Edwards Lane.

The event runs from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The candidates will speak for three minutes each and answer questions. Five candidates are running for the office, four of them are expected to take part in the forum.
