Barring any objections from the S.C. Election Commission (SCEC), Kershaw County voters will see two referenda on November’s ballot to fund capital improvement projects for the school district. The Kershaw County Board of School Trustees voted Tuesday to forward two resolutions officially requesting the SCEC place two referenda questions on the ballot in November. One referendum would ask voters to approve an up to $129 million bond to pay for various facility upgrades and replacements.
