Mayor Andy Ingram and Town Councilman Randy Butler are the only two facing opponents in November’s municipal election.
Anthony Waymyers has thrown his hat into the ring for mayor. Jim Crawford filed in hopes of unseating Butler in the Cheraw Town Council’s District 1, according to county candidate filings.
District 3 Councilman John K. Melton and District 5 Councilman Fred Harris are both running unopposed. The municipal election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 3.
All offices are nonpartisan, meaning party affiliations will not appear on the ballot and primaries will not be held to determine party nominees.
Cheraw residents must be registered to vote no later than Oct. 15 to participate in the fall election. To register or check current voter status, call the Chesterfield County Board of Voter Registration at 843-623-2265.
Voting will run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Cheraw residents will cast their ballots at the following four polling places depending on their registered precinct:
• Precinct No. 1 — Cheraw Community Center, 200 Powe St.
• Precinct No. 2 — Cheraw Fire Department, 12 Chesterfield Highway
• Precinct No. 3 — First Baptist Church, 121 Greene St.
• Precinct No. 4 — Northeastern Technical College, 1201 Chesterfield Highway
Poll managers will begin examining absentee ballot return envelopes at each polling place at 2 p.m. on Election Day. A Municipal Election Commission hearing to determine the validity of any challenged ballots and to certify election results is set for 10 a.m. Nov. 5.
If results require a runoff election, the runoff will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 17 at the same four Cheraw precincts.
