Jason Goings has won the Aiken County Treasurer’s race.
After days of waiting for a winner as election officials counted the write-ins, the final results were tallied this afternoon. All candidates in the race were write-ins, leading to a delay in getting final reporting numbers.
Goings won with 3,818 votes, followed by John Cagle (2,542), Angela Gunter (2,027), Melissa Oremus (1,967), Robin Saylor (1,332), Debra Folk (983), Sonya Spray (406), Francis Pennington (330), Ed Smith (170) and Mike Wheelis (42),
