CHARLESTON, S. C. (WCIV) -- James Island residents are just a day away from electing their town leaders.

Voters will head to the polls Tuesday, July 31 to elect a mayor and fill four town council spots.

The new James Island includes two-thirds of the previous population because some residents were previously annexed into the city of Charleston.

When voters pull the curtain behind them, they will see familiar names.

Former mayor Bill Woolsey is running unopposed. There are seven candidates running for the four town council seats.

Those candidates are:

• Mary Beth Berry
• Leonard Blank
• Marilyn Clifford
• Sandi Engelman
• Sam Kernodle
• Darren "Troy" Mullinax
• Linda Womack

It has taken four attempts for James Island to officially be allowed to incorporate.
