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.
