Midlands election night tie leads to recount, potential for weeks of additional elections
SALUDA, S.C. (WIS) - The Town of Saluda is facing the potential for multiple additional elections in the coming weeks after a tie for leadership of the town.
The race for Mayor ended in a tie Tuesday night. The results posted on SC Votes show the three-way race ended with Wayne Bryan receiving 126 votes, Amelia Herlong receiving 242 votes, and Miliken Matthews receiving 242 votes.
Matthews also ran for the City Council Ward 1 race. He was unopposed in that race.
WIS reached out to the town and was told a recount is underway Wednesday. If a tie is confirmed a runoff election will be scheduled for next week.
If Matthews wins the race for mayor then a separate election will need to be scheduled for the city council position later in Nov. or Dec.
This is a developing story and WIS will update it as we learn more.
