Servant faces Boyd in primary, not Smith

  • Friday, June 13, 2014

A discrepancy with absentee ballots discovered after the June 10 Horry County primary election has changed the Republican runoff for County Council District 5.

Tyler Servant, who received the most votes in the election, will now face Reese Boyd III for the seat in a runoff election on June 24.

Sandy Martin, director of Horry County Board of Elections, said there was a computer problem, so the Board had to hand enter the totals.

The official results state that there were 3,556 ballots cast for the Horry County Council District 5 primary election.

There were 1,077 votes for Tyler Servant, 630 for Reese Boyd III, 411 for Chuck Ottwell and 360 for Clif Smith.

There were a total of 20,675 ballots cast in the county.
