The votes from Tuesday’s Democratic mayoral runoff in the City of Georgetown were certified Thursday and the outcome did not change.
However, after one fail safe vote and one challenged ballot were added to the count, Mayor Jack Scoville’s lead over Councilman Rudolph Bradley was cut from 50 — as reported Tuesday night — to 48.
Officially, Scoville received 670 votes. Bradley received 622 votes. The vote was certified by the Georgetown County Board of Canvassers.
The field is now set for November when Scoville will face Republican Richard Powers.
There are three expiring City Council seats that will also be on the November ballot. Democrats incumbents Brendon Barber, Jeanette Ard and newcomer Doris Simmons will face Republican incumbent Paige Sawyer and newcomers Carol Jayroe and Ed Kimbrough.
