The Cayce City Council adopted a new ordinance June 19 to change the Cayce municipal election cycle to run on odd-numbered years, at the request of the Lexington County Commission of Registration and Elections.
Currently, the City of Cayce municipal elections are held on even-numbered years. The City of Cayce was the only one of the 14 municipalities in Lexington County to have consistently held elections on even-numbered years without change.
The reasons for the change are:
• Reducing confusion at the polls. Currently many voters do not realize there is a municipal election on the ballot as well as State and Federal Elections.
• Reducing the demand on the county election staff.
• Eliminating poll workers assisting voters with filling out a paper ballot.
