Polls open for voting in Beaufort City Council special election

BEAUFORT, S.C. (WTOC) - City of Beaufort residents will head to the polls on Tuesday, March 2, for a special election.

Residents will cast their vote for the next city council member. The council seat became open when Stephen Murray was elected as mayor in November’s special election. This position is at large, which means the individual who is elected will represent the entire city.

Only voters registered inside the city limits can vote in this election. Polls will be open Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Three candidates have filed to run for the seat – Mike McFee, Fred White, and Brantley Wilson.

The winner will be sworn in on March 9. The term will end in December 2022.
