WOODRUFF, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A new election in the Woodruff mayoral race ended with the same result as in November.
The original results from the general election were tossed out last fall. The results were contested by Lisa White, who was among three candidates for the mayor's race, including Kenneth Gist and incumbent Mayor W. Brad Burnett.
White, who came in second behind Gist, said she believed people who were not eligible to vote in the race were allowed to cast a ballot, and said voting machines at some polling places displayed a ballot reserved for a Woodruff resident to voters who lived outside the town limits.
According to Henry Laye, elections director in Spartanburg County, Tuesday's results ended with the candidates placing in the same order.
Laye said Gist won the election with 392 votes, while White came in second with 192 votes. Burnett placed third with 115 votes.
