The deadline for walk-in voter registration for this year's Aiken County Council District 5 election is today.

Stuart Bedenbaugh, executive director for Aiken County Registration and Elections, said people will be able to register at his 916 Vaucluse Road office until 5 p.m. today.

For those who miss that deadline, though, a voter registration application mailed with a postmark no later than Saturday will still be accepted, he said. An application can be found at www.scvotes.org.

Republican candidates L.J. "Larry" Murphy, Barry Baggott, Sandy Haskell and former Augusta Commissioner Andy Cheek, who moved to Aiken County, are running for the council's District 5 seat being vacated by Eddie Butler, who is resigning Nov. 3 because he plans to move out of that district.

Democrats Judy Hamilton and James W. Richardson, both of Belvedere, also have filed to run. Mr. Bedenbaugh said that when registering voters do not have to declare themselves as a Democrat or Republican.
