The candidates for today's Kershaw County Council District 1 special election primaries are (from left, in alphabetical order) Al Bozard - Republican, Bobby Gary- Democrat, Art Graham - Democrat and George Harkins - Republican.

The Kershaw County Democratic and Republican parties will hold their primaries today for a special election to fill the District 1 seat on Kershaw County Council. Willie Mickle resigned from the seat in late November citing personal insurance needs versus state insurance programs.

Those deciding to vote in the Democratic primary have Art Graham and former District 1 councilman Bobby Gary to choose between. On the Republican side, the contenders are Al Bozard and George Harkins.

If runoffs are necessary for either party, they will be held Feb. 23. The special election between the two winning nominees will be March 29.
