A special election is now underway in Laurens County Council, District 3, to select someone to finish the current unexpired term of the late Councilman Ed McDaniel. The candidates, selected last month in special primaries, are Republican Dianne Belsom and Democrat Garrett McDaniel.
Precincts open for the special election today are Laurens City precincts 1 thru 6, Bailey, Trinity Ridge, Barksdale-Narnie, Maddens, Owings and Gray Court. Only District 3 registered votes in these precincts are eligible to vote.
These polls are open until 7:00 this evening. WLBG will be broadcasting election results from the Historic County Courthouse this evening.
