WHEREAS, the Town of Lynchburg was to have held elections for municipal offices on April 7, 1998; and
WHEREAS, the Town failed to take certain actions necessary for the holding of the elections; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to S. C. Code Ann. § 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 ensure 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 Lynchburg Municipal Election Commission schedule an election for the office of Town Council to be held on June 23, 1998. It is further Ordered that the Town of Lynchburg Municipal 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 16TH DAY OF APRIL, 1998.
