NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - On Tuesday, voters will head to the polls to decide the next leaders in several Lowcountry areas.

There could be a big change in leadership in North Charleston. All ten council seats will be decided, with 27 candidates vying for the spots.

On Monday, many North Charleston voters weren't sure who they were going to vote for, but they did know the importance of their vote.

"Because I'm hoping that we get some people in there that have some good values and really do care about the people," said North Charleston resident David Stanton, who lives in District 5.

"Because every vote counts, I guess," said North Charleston resident Jordan Bumgarner, who lives in district 8. "So, I've been told."

Others North Charleston residents will have to wait for next election.

"I just became a citizen last month and I missed the deadline just by three days," said Antonio Fuentes.
