How Does Incorporation Happen?
Essentially, there are three major steps (broken into many minor steps):
• Application and Signatures: We begin by gathering all the required materials, surveys and signatures necessary to qualify for a vote. The State of South Carolina must review this package and confirm that we have delivered the proper documents.
• Vote for Incorporation: Only people living in the proposed Indian Land borders will be allowed to vote in this special election.
If a majority of voters support the measure, the referendum passes and we have a Town of Indian Land.
• Vote for Indian Land Town Council: Soon after the town is approved, five town council members (representing five districts) will be elected to manage the newly formed town.
We Need Your Support and Your Vote
The process of getting a vote for incorporation is complex.
We will be handling the heavy lifting (applications, population surveys, budgeting, etc.).
However, we are asking for three things from Indian Land residents:
• Volunteer: We will need your help spreading the word about our effort. Get your HOA, school, work and civic groups involved!
• Donate: There are costs to gather the professional certifications required by the State of South Carolina.
For example, holding a special election is not free. Any donations would be greatly appreciated and extremely helpful.
We promise to be good stewards of your donations and only use these funds for items and services that we can't get donated.
• Vote: When the time comes, we need you to turn out and vote in favor of incorporation. We also need you to spread the word!
Your vote will ensure a beautiful and prosperous community for years to come.
