says the board needs more money. board members are requesting million dollars be added to their annual budget, which is nearly double their budget now. tuesday night, director samuel selph says the board is not financially prepared to run all the elections in the county next year, which is a state mandate. he says money is needed to purchase new machines, repair current ones and to hire a technician. selph also made the argument that other counties have a smaller population than richland -- yet have more funding for their elections board. "the fact that greenville county is a much more industrialized county and has a larger tax base and that charleston county is a much more richer county and that kind of thing, it does not negate the fact that we have to run elections in richland county for 265- thousand registered voters, it does not negate the fact that more people here in this county and we have to be ready when elections come around." the council agrees the department needs more funding. the request passed first reading last night but council asked samuel selph to the request passed first reading
