Four Democrats filed to run for the seat. No Republicans or other party members or independents filed. Any registered voter can vote in the primary.
In the Sept. 2 primary, candidate Sam L. Floyd was the top votegetter and he will face Ronnie A. Sabb in a runoff on Sept. 16. A candidate must receive at least 50 percent of the vote to avoid a runoff.
Sam L. Floyd lives in Kingstree, where he is a member of Williamsburg County Council;
Ronnie A. Sabb lives in Greeleyville, where he is an attorney and also a member of the state House representing much of Williamsburg County.
Any registered voter in the district can vote in the runoff, even those who did not vote Sept. 2.
The winner is likely to take office because no one else is running, but the winner's name will be on the Nov. 4 general election ballot.
The program is sponsored by a number of local groups; the lead sponsor is Early Learning Council of Georgetown County. The LWVGC is one of the sponsors.
