AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WRDW) -- Aiken County Council could be holding another election soon.

County Council member Willar Hightower is a candidate for the at-large district board of South Carolina State University, a school he attended.

These positions are elected by joint legislature and will be voted on in May.

If Hightower is elected, he will be required by law to step down from his seat on the county council.

Hightower says he was encouraged by many to run for his position.
