Laurens County Registration & Elections Director Lynne West last night asked Laurens City Council to move City Elections from being held concurrently with November General Elections. She noted the state has a proviso for municipal elections to be held in the spring. She requested Laurens move their elections to the 1st Tuesday of March each odd-numbered year, which would be the same date as other county municipalities, Clinton, Cross Hill, Waterloo and Gray Court.
West promised this move will save the city money. Council accepted the request for future discussion.
