CLARENDON COUNTY - Three of Clarendon County's four municipalities will hold elections on Tuesday.

The polls in all three elections will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. on July 14. Write-in votes are allowed in all three elections.

In Manning, residents will vote for mayor and three seats on council.

Manning Mayor Julia A. Nelson, who is seeking another term in office, has opposition from LaNette Samuels-Cooper.

Clayton Pack, incumbent councilman who currently holds City Council Seat 1, and Johnny E. Gordon, incumbent councilman who currently holds City Council Seat 2, are seeking to retain their seats on council. Incumbent Sherry A. Welle, councilwoman from City Council Seat 6, has opposition from challenger John Weeks.

Manning's five precincts have been combined into two locations. Residents voting in Manning Precincts 1 and 5 will vote at Weldon Auditorium, 7 Maple St. Residents voting in Manning Precincts 2, 3 and 4 will vote at the Clarendon County Administration Building's Council Chambers, 411 Sunset Drive.

In Summerton, residents will go to the polls to elect members to three council seats. Because no candidates filed to run for the three seats on council, voters will need to write in the names of the individuals that they want to serve on council.

Summerton voters in Precincts 1, 2 and 3 will all vote at the Clarendon Community Resource Center Gym, 1154 4th St.

On the northern end of Clarendon County, a special election is being held to fill a seat on Turbeville Town Council that was vacated when then-councilwoman Kathryn Turbeville resigned her seat on council to run and ultimately win the race for Turbeville's mayor. Marion Dukes and Tammy Hicks are vying for the seat vacated by Turbeville.

All voters in Turbeville will vote at Turbeville Town Hall, 1400 Main St.
