HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WTOC) - Hilton Head Island voters will select their next mayor in a runoff election.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at all the regular polling locations. If you voted in the general election – you will go to the same place Tuesday to cast your ballot.

The runoff race is the only thing on the ballot Tuesday. Voters will choose either JoAnn Orischak and Alan Perry to be the next mayor of Hilton Head Island.

“I didn’t have to wait in line. I just walked in, voted and came out but other than that the people in there are so competent, helpful and dedicated,” voter Mary Jo Bennett said.

She says at the precinct at the Hilton Head Library two weeks ago, she waited 50 minutes to cast a ballot. But the turnout was much less Tuesday, as poll workers say they’ve had a steady stream of voters but nothing close to what they saw for the midterm.
