WHEREAS, the Town of Pelzer was to have held elections for municipal offices on November 4, 1997; and
WHEREAS, the responsible election official neglected to publish the notice of election required by S.C. Code Ann. Section 7-13-35, thereby making it legally impossible to hold municipal elections on the date prescribed by law; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. Section 7-13-1170 (Cum. Supp. 1995), where the responsible election official has failed to provide for the holding of an election at the time appointed, the Governor is authorized to order an election to be held at the time and place and with such notice as to him appears adequate to insure the will of the electorate being fairly expressed.
NOW, THEREFORE, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of South Carolina, it is Ordered that the Town of Pelzer Election Commission schedule an election for the office of Mayor and for Council Members to be held on January 13, 1998. It is further Ordered that the Town of Pelzer Election Commission shall take all steps necessary to schedule and hold this election.
GIVEN UNDER MY HAND AND THE GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, THIS 13TH DAY OF OCTOBER, 1997
DAVID M. BEASLEY
