Tuesday, a special election was held for Florence County Council Seat 1 to fill an unexpired term.
Jason Springs was unopposed on the ballot. He received 323 votes. There was one vote for a write-in candidate.
Springs won the Democratic primary for the seat, and no Republicans filed to run.
By state law, the polls must open for this unopposed race to allow for potential write-in candidates.
This is for Florence County Council Seat One to fill an unexpired term ending in 2014. That seat was left open when Rusty Smith became Florence County Administrator in November.
