On the Second Ballot, the Rev. Cn. Ruth Woodliff-Stanley has been elected the XV Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina. She received 13 of the required 10 votes in the Lay Order, and 26 of the required 18 votes in the Clergy Order. There were 19.5 votes cast in the Lay Order and 34 votes in the Clergy Order. Thanks be to God!
The results of the first ballot are published above. Since no candidate received the necessary votes in both the Lay and Clergy Orders, the Convention will move to a second ballot.
