Council election Tuesday

The election for Blackville Town Council will be held Tuesday, Nov. 5, at the community center.
Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and residents from the town's three precincts will vote at the community center.
Three council seats are up for grabs. Current council members Steve Jowers and Allen Harrison are running for re-election. Councilman Russ Reed decided not to run for re-election.
Fred Orr, a former math teacher at Blackville-Hilda High School and long-time resident of the town, filed as a write-in candidate. His name will not be on the ballot and will have to be written in by voters who want to see him on council.
