Pickens Co., SC election board, staff resign at once

Pickens County’s elections director, its two elections staffers and five member board have resigned, according to a statement from the county. A spokesman for the state’s Election Commission, Chris Whitmire, said he is not aware of any other instances where staff and an elections board resigned all at once in his 15 years with the commission. It sets the county up for a complicated two months, as replacement staff will have to certify candidates, prepare ballots and handle the logistics of a primary election scheduled for June 9, Whitmire said.
