On November 6, 2018, two seats on the Commission will be up for election. The election is non-partisan, and the two candidates receiving the most votes will serve four-year terms.
Individuals interested in serving on the Commission must be registered voters living on Fripp Island. Prospective candidates must file a Statement of Candidacy with the Beaufort County Board of Elections and Voter Registration. A filing fee is NOT required.
The DEADLINE for Filing is NOON, Wednesday, August 15, 2018.
