Walhalla and Westminster to get political
Political fever will soon run through both Walhalla and Westminster. Those two Oconee County municipalities hold elections this year—each of which will take place November 5. This year Walhalla holds two elections simultaneously. One, to fill an unexpired term on the city council. The other is a general election to fill three other seats. On November 5, Westminster voters select three city council members. Those interested in running may qualify with the Oconee Office of Voter Registration and Election in Walhalla. The qualifying period opens at noon Monday, August 26 and closes at noon Friday, September 6.
