CHESTER, S.C. (AP) - Chester County voters will have to go to the polls again to choose county supervisor after the State Election Commission threw out November’s race.

The Herald of Rock Hill reports (https://bit.ly/1C9eJNC ) that the commission issued an order this week that voting machines didn’t have the proper ballot, there was a lack of paper ballots and at least seven precincts sent voters away because of the problems.

The challenge was filed by petition candidate Shane Stuart, who lost by 230 votes to longtime County Supervisor Carlisle Roddey.

Roddy says he doesn’t plan to appeal because the errors were made by election officials, not him. He says he is ready for another election, likely in February or March.

Stuart says he is glad to get a chance for a fair election.
