Voters in District 2 will head to the polls today to elect new Columbia City Council representative from among a field of eight candidates.
As of Monday, 112 of residents already had cast ballots in absentee voting — a sign of what is expected to be a low turnout for tomorrow’s election.
In the April 20 runoff for Columbia mayor, when the city had one if its highest turnouts for a local election in recent memory, 1,552 people voted absentee across the city’s four council districts. That breaks down to 388 people per district.
The Richland County Voter Registration Office issued 119 absentee ballots. They must be received by 7 p.m. today to be counted.
