The town of James Island near Charleston elects a mayor on Tuesday. Incumbent Mary Clark is running against are four challengers.
The town has incorporated three times since the 1990s, but the first two incorporations were tossed out after court challenges from neighboring Charleston.

A decision by the justices is expected next year.
