Vote in runoff elections June 28

Two of the races in the June 14 primaries resulted in runoff elections.

There is a Republican runoff for state Senate District 34 between Reese Boyd and Stephen Goldfinch. The district includes coastal areas of the county but not the city of Georgetown. The winner will likely take the seat because no Democrat is running. The seat is being vacated by Sen. Ray Cleary.

A Democratic runoff will be held for County Council District 3 between Everett Carolina and Leona "Tiger" Miller.

Those elections will be held Tuesday, June 28. If you are a registered voter, you can vote in a runoff even if you did not vote on June 14. But if you voted in one party's primaries on June 14, you cannot vote in the other party's runoff.

Youth voter registration

Our League, partnered with Delta Sigma Theta Georgetown Alumnae Chapter registered 132 young people earlier in April. Several more took forms or other information about how to register.

We held registration opportunities in all four high schools, plus the Howard Adult Center and Horry Georgetown Technical College.

We received a grant from the LWV Education Fund to cover expenses such as printing posters. It is not too late to register, if you will be 18 by the time of the November election, you have until May 14 to register to vote in the June 14 primaries.
