City of Cayce’s election to fill Council District One seat set for September
Cayce, SC (Paul Kirby) – According to the Lexington County’s director of Voter Registration and Elections Commission Mary Brack, the election to fill the Cayce City Council’s District One seat has been scheduled for September 22, 2020. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Please remember that Cayce is a mandatory face covering city so you will need to have a mask or some other approved device to cover your face.
The seat was left open when Tara Almond resigned during a virtual meeting in early July. Almond said in a post she made on July 9th, “It is with mixed emotions that I announce that I have resigned from my seat on Cayce City Council. I have lived my entire life in the Midlands of South Carolina and Cayce will always be considered my hometown but I am in a position in my life to be able to fulfill a lifelong dream of living on the coast and enjoying beach life and I am taking this opportunity that has now presented itself.”
Three individuals have thrown their hats into the ring to run for the seat. They are Tim James, Megan Lightle, and Tiffany Aull. Whoever the voters choose will represent much of The Avenues area of Cayce south and east of 12th Street to the Congaree River, a small area on the west side of 12th Street that includes the area around city hall and the Cayce Department of Public Safety Complex, a small area north of Knox Abbott Drive, and even a small sliver of property that’s southeast of Cayce Street. District One has a large residential population, but also includes some dense commercial areas as well. A map is attached for your convenience.
Over the next few weeks, we will attempt to contact each of the registered candidates to try and obtain further details about each. You can order absentee ballots from SCvotes.org now if necessary so that you can return them quickly if you can’t make it to the polls in late September.
