Absentee Ballots out Today

Walk-in Absentee Voting begins this Tuesday, February 21st, for the upcoming Municipal Elections in Laurens, Clinton and Cross Hill.

In Laurens, terms are expiring for three City Council positions. Just one is on the ballot with opposition, that’s a three-person race for Council District One. Two seats on the Laurens Commission of Public Works are up for re-election. Two people are running for a District 1 seat and three are seeking election from CPW District 2.

In Clinton, two people are seeking election to City Council seat 5, while three are seeking election to seat 3. In Clinton City Council seat 1, Danny Cook is seeking re-election and the ballot shows him challenged by James Hayes, who has since said he no longer is seeking the seat.

In Cross Hill, Randy Bishop and Bobby Kersey face off for the Mayor’s job, while six people are running for the four available at-large positions on Town Council.

Elections were not required for Gray Court and Waterloo, where two council members are not opposed in each town, and the Waterloo Mayor is also not opposed for re-election.

In Laurens, Clinton and Cross Hill, polls will be open Tuesday, March 7th for the contested positions.
