Republican Phil Napier will be the only name listed on Tuesday's ballot after winning the Republican primary for the seat on Feb 5. Napier, a small-business owner and volunteer fire chief of the GVW Fire Department, previously served on County Council from 1999 to 2002.

No Democratic candidate filed for the seat. However, voters will still be able to cast a write-in vote for a candidate if they choose.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Only one precinct location has changed from February's primary. The polling station for Precinct 56, the Aiken Electric Cooperative office located at 2790 Wagener Road, has been moved to the polling place for Precinct 57, East Aiken Elementary School, located at 233 Old Wagener Road. Only Aiken County residents living in District 6 are eligible to vote in the election.

Cynthia Holland, executive director of Aiken County Registration and Elections, said she expects turnout to be very low with only one name on the ballot and no candidate putting together a concerted write-in vote effort.
