Fisher selected as new Lexington County coroner

Posted: Updated:

Lexington County's new coroner is Margaret Fisher.

Fisher finished Tuesday's runoff with 5,489 votes against Brian Setree, who ended the contest with 3,882 votes.

Voter turnout turned out to be extremely low for the special election as only 6 percent of Lexington County voters participated in the voting process.

Fisher earned the right to take part in the runoff as she and Setree were the top candidates in a recent election that featured seven candidates.

"I am extremely grateful to the people of Lexington County for electing me their next coroner and for all the volunteers and voters who came out to make that happen," Fisher said on her campaign page on Facebook. "I look forward to serving each and every person from one end of the county to the other. Thank you, Lexington County, for making this win possible. Now, it's time to get to work!"
