GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCSC) - Polls will be open until 7 p.m. Tuesday in Georgetown as voters fill an empty city council seat vacated in August.

Two candidates, Republican Kelley Ray Johnson and Democrat Tamika Williams Obeng, filed to run for the seat.

The new council member will replace Al Joseph, who resigned from the post on Aug. 12 when he accepted a new position as Main Street Coordinator with the city’s Planning and Community Development Department.

“I am very proud and blessed to have served on City Council and hope that I can continue to serve the City of Georgetown in my new role for years to come,” Joseph said in August when he announced he would leave city council. He was first elected as a city councilman in 2016.
