Election Day

Voters fill out their ballots at the 801 South Boston Precinct (Washington Coleman Community Center) the morning of Election Day.

It appears Brian Burton has been elected to South Boston Town Council as a write-in candidate.

As of Thursday afternoon, Burton had 512 votes and Tina Wyatt-Younger — the other write-in candidate — had captured 430, according to Halifax County Registrar Heather Harding. With about 50 ballots left to be counted, the difference wouldn't be enough to overcome the spread.
