Posted on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 1:31 pm

Write-In candidate, Faron Hamblin, won a seat on the Warsaw town council during last night’s Warsaw Town Elections. Richmond County General Registrar, Halle Keyser, confirmed that Hamblin won with 53 write-in votes.

There were four positions available for Warsaw town council. Keyser stated that there were only two campaigning write-ins, Ariel Walker and William Washington.

Despite yesterday’s power outages, the election polls remained open due to backup batteries in the voting machines.
