Folly Beach voters will go to the poll Tuesday. File

Folly Beach voters return to the polls Tuesday to choose their third council representative.

D. Keith Bolus and William Farley are squaring off in the runoff for a seat on the at-large nonpartisan council.

Bolus, 59, who grew up on James Island and Folly Beach, is a lawyer who has lived on the island full time since 1986.

Farley, 57, is a retired police chief from North Carolina and current member of the Folly Beach Public Safety beach patrol.

During the April 3 election, a third of the city’s nearly 2,500 voters turned out to cast ballots for the mayor and three open council seats.

Tim Goodwin ran unopposed for his third term as mayor.

Two of the six council candidates, Amy Ray and incumbent DJ Rich, each received enough votes to win seats outright, but a runoff between Farley and Bolus was required.

Incumbents Pennell Clamp and Dale Stuckey did not seek re-election.

The poll will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Voters in Folly Beach 1, Folly Beach 2, James Island 1A, and James Island 1B will cast their ballots at Baptist Fellowship Hall, 61 W. Indian Ave.
