      Special election set to fill Florence County council seat

      The Florence County Voter and Registration Office says a special election will be held on March 19 to fill a seat in Florence County Council District One.

      Rusty Smith resigned from the seat two weeks ago after taking the position as the Florence County Administrator.

      He served the district for more than 20 years.

      Filing for the seat opens November 30 and ends December 10.

      The filing fee is $277.

      Filing for Democratic candidates is being held at 1814 West Evans Street and for Republican candidates at 704 Beaverdam Drive.

      A primary will be held on January 29.
