A referendum that could more than double the population of Jamestown is up for a vote Tuesday.

Only registered voters in the area that would be annexed can vote.

The election is set for 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the library near the municipal center.

The Berkeley County town has 72 residents, according to the 2010 census. The area to be annexed includes 168 registered voters.

Jamestown extends less than a half-mile in each direction from the intersection of S.C. Highways 41 and 45 and U.S. Highway 17A.

The annexation would extend the town limits along S.C. Highway 41 north to the Santee River and south to Tiger Corner Road, east along S.C. Highway 45 to Simmons Road and west along U.S. Highway 17A to Tiger Corner Road.
