DILLON, SC (WMBF) – Residents in Dillon will have to go back to the polls in a couple of weeks to vote for a new mayor.

For the first time in more than 15 years, residents voted for a new mayor on Tuesday after longtime Mayor Todd Davis decided to not seek re-election.

Tally McColl received 557 votes, Corey Jackson received 420 votes and Kenneth Smith got 317 votes.

Because McColl and and Jackson didn’t get 51% of the vote, then a runoff will take place.

The runoff will be held on April 16.
