Filing opens for Lodge elections

In addition to Cottageville’s upcoming election, filing is also now open for interested political candidates who live in Lodge. 

The Town of Lodge will hold its municipal election on November 7th for the town’s mayor and two of its council members.
This is a non-partisan election, meaning party affiliation does not matter. However, only residents of Lodge who live within the town’s registered limits can seek a seat for the municipality’s offices. According to the town’s population information, as provided by Colleton County, there are 120 people who live inside the town’s limits.
Filing for these three seats opened at noon on August 16th and remains open through noon on August 25th.
Anyone who wants to run for one of these three seats can file at the Colleton County Voter Registration and Elections Office, which is now located at 2471 Jefferies Boulevard in Walterboro.
Unlike other municipal elections in Colleton County, there is no filing fee to run for an election in Lodge. Interested candidates should go to www.scvotes.org/candidateinformation and obtain the “Nonpartisan Statement of Intention of Candidacy” Form. This form is required to run for office. Also, any interested candidate seeking a seat must fill out the state’s “Statement of Economic Interest” and “Campaign Disclosure” forms. Both of these forms can be found online at www.ethics.sc.gov.
In addition to Lodge’s municipal election, three other Colleton County towns are also holding elections this year: Edisto Beach, Walterboro and Cottageville are each having elections for either council seats and/or mayoral positions.
