BEAUFORT, S.C. (June 24, 2020) – Do you feel a calling to serve your community? Residents of the City of Beaufort who are interested in serving in local government in an elected capacity have several opportunities this fall.

The positions of mayor and two City Council seats are up for election this November. In South Carolina, municipal offices are non-partisan.

Those interested must live in the City of Beaufort. You must file a Statement of Intention of Candidacy and Statement of Economic Interests by noon on Aug 14, 2020.

Packets will be available on Wednesday, June 24, to be picked up from City Hall either in the first-floor lobby or the Office of City Clerk on the second floor. Packets will also be available on the City of Beaufort’s website.

Packets must be returned in person to the Office of City Clerk no later than noon, Aug. 14. Packets cannot be mailed in or emailed.

The filing fee for candidates running for mayor is $250, and for City Council, $150.

The General Election, which is also a Presidential Election this year, will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 3. Newly elected officeholders will take their seats on Dec. 8.

The current officeholders of the seats up for election are Mayor Billy Keyserling, Mayor Pro Tem Mike McFee, and Councilwoman Nan Sutton.

The address of City Hall is 1911 Boundary St., Beaufort, 29902.
