Three Vie for Dist. 1 County Council Seat in June Primary

web posted March 29, 2014

EDGEFIELD In a stunning turn of events Friday, an unexpected candidate filed to seek to unseat 22-year incumbent Norman Dorn from the Dist. 1 County Council seat in the upcoming Democrat June Primaries. Joe W. Quarles, a political unknown, filed paperwork declaring himself a candidate in the race.

Quarles lists his address as Highway 378 East, Edgefield, placing him well into the Northside Communities. Edgefield Daily was unable to reach out to Mr. Quarles on Friday, but will seek to make contact over the weekend before a final listing of all candidates is placed on Monday.

With a three-way race in the Democrat Primary for the Dist. 1 seat, a run-off is inevitable. Which two candidates move forward will depend upon the voters. In order for a candidate to seize the seat outright in the primary they would need to take 50% plus 1 vote, something that is highly unlikely.

In the event of a run-off, the top two vote getters will face off on June 24 to decide the outcome.

Currently the candidates are Democrats Norman Dorn, Albert Talbert and Joe Quarles.

As of close of business on Friday, there was no Republican entered in the race. Filing for elective office will continue through Sunday when the books close at noon.

Edgefield Daily will keep readers posted on the latest developments on candidates as it becomes available.
