If you’re on Hilton Head on Nov. 20 and registered to vote, you’ll be able to choose either Kim Likins or John McCann as the next mayor.
All polling locations that were used in the general election on Nov. 6 will be used for the runoff election, according to the Board of Voter Registration and Elections of Beaufort County. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Election Day.
Likins and McCann are in a runoff election because neither garnered more than 50 percent of the vote in the general election.
There will not be an option for a write-in candidate in the mayoral runoff, according to Marie Smalls, the board’s director.
