On Tuesday, residents of James Island for a fourth-time voted to create a Town of James Island — albeit a smaller one that is some two-thirds the size of the last Town of James Island.
Some 85% of voters said yes to the measure, voters also chose that the town would:
- Be called the Town of James Island;
- Have non-partisan elections;
- At large elections;
- Mayor-council form of government; and
- Four-year terms.
NBC News 2 has detailed precint-by-precinct results.
Residents will return to polls on July 31 to elect a council and mayor, after which official town business can begin.
There is a detailed map of the new town.
