COLUMUBS COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Early voting began Thursday in the re-election for Fair Bluff Town Mayor.

Incumbent Mayor Randy Britt lost to Chris Scott by two votes in November.  However, Britt challenged the outcome by pointing out that some people voted in the election and don't live in the town.

The North Carolina Board of Elections agreed with Britt's claim and ordered the re-vote.  None of the people who voted are expected to be charged in this incident.

Early voting will be conducted at the Columbus County Election Board in Whiteville on Monday thru Friday from 8:30am-5pm. The office will also be open on Saturday the 20th, the last day of early voting, until 1pm

The official election will take place on February 23.
