AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 260 OF 1981, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE PICKENS COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD OF TRUSTEES, SO AS TO CHANGE THE FILING DEADLINES TO BE CONSISTENT WITH STATE LAW AND TO CORRECT REFERENCES TO THE REGISTRATION AND ELECTIONS COMMISSION FOR PICKENS COUNTY.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Reference corrected, filing deadline changed
SECTION 1. Section 1A. of Act 260 of 1981, as last amended by Act 527 of 1996, is further amended to read:
"Section 1A. All persons desiring to qualify as a candidate shall file written notice of their candidacy with the county registration and elections commission as prescribed by Section 7-13-352 of the 1976 Code. A notice of candidacy shall not be filed earlier than August first, or if August first falls on a Sunday, not earlier than the following Monday. This notice of candidacy must be a sworn statement and shall include the candidate's name, age, voting precinct, single-member election district in which the candidate resides if a candidate for a seat on the board from one of the six single-member election districts, seat number the candidate desires to file for if a candidate for one of the three numbered at-large seats on the board, period of residence in the single-member election district or school district as applicable, and any other information the county registration and elections commission requires.
At the time of filing written notice of his candidacy with the county registration and elections commission, a candidate also shall pay a filing fee equal to one percent of the total salary for the term of this office or one hundred dollars, whichever amount is greater. These filing fees must be used to offset the costs of the elections.
The county commissioners of registration and elections shall conduct and supervise all elections for members of the board in the manner governed by the election laws of this State, mutatis mutandis. The commissioners shall prepare the necessary ballots, appoint managers for the voting precincts, and do all things necessary to carry out the elections, including the counting of ballots and declaring the results. The commissioners shall advertise the date of the election sixty days preceding the election in the newspapers of general circulation published in Pickens County and shall publish a second notice two weeks thereafter. The cost of the elections is borne by Pickens County. The results of the election must be determined in accordance with the nonpartisan plurality method prescribed by Section 5-15-61 of the 1976 Code."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 23rd day of May, 2001.
Became law without the signature of the Governor -- 5/30/01.
