Today, voters in Kershaw County Council District 1 are choosing who they want to replace Willie Mickle, who resigned in November 2015 citing issues with state insurance benefits. Up for the seat are Republican Al Bozard and Democrat Bobby Gary, who won their respective primaries in February to face each other in today’s special election. In the Feb. 9 primaries, Bozard defeated fellow Republican George Harkins while Gary -- who held the District 1 seat prior to Mickle -- defeated Democrat Art Graham.

Whoever wins today’s special election will hold the District 1 seat for the remainder of 2016. However, Bozard and Gary, as well as anyone else wishing to file, may also choose to run for the seat in November’s general election for a full four-year term which will start in January 2017.
