The special election Tuesday between County Council incumbent Marion Foxworth and challenger Joe DeFeo likely will come down to voter turnout.
"Ten percent would be almost 1,200 voters, which would be an awesome turnout," said Foxworth, who worked professionally on various elections and referendums before being elected to the council.
"There were a lot of people who turned out [in November] who did not know Marion Foxworth or Joe DeFeo" and just voted along party lines, Foxworth said."There were a lot of people who turned out [in November] who did not know Marion Foxworth or Joe DeFeo" and just voted along party lines, Foxworth said.
Foxworth said his platform is providing a voice for residents in a district that contains some of the area's biggest tourism draws, including The Myrtle Beach Pavilion Amusement Park, Family Kingdom and Broadway at the Beach.He also has said one of his top goals is completing Postal Way, a proposed road that would connect Carolina Forest to shopping centers in the area and give an alternative to U.S. 501.
"If only 500 to 600 people show up, I believe Marion Foxworth will win.If 2,000 people show up, I will win."
The actual number of votes probably will fall somewhere between those figures, he said.
Meanwhile, Foxworth has managed to get support from some high-profile Republicans, including County Council Chairwoman Liz Gilland.
County Democratic Party Chairman Greg McCollum said the support comes down to Foxworth being a better candidate.
"Marion has built a bi-party support base," McCollum said.

The Sun News | 03/13/2005 | 'Gloves are off' as DeFeo, Foxworth rematch takes negative turn, 13 Mar 2005 [cached]
The County Council election rematch between Joe DeFeo and incumbent Marion Foxworth is at least two months away, but the race already is boiling over.
In recent weeks, Foxworth hounded the embattled aviation company AvCraft, which DeFeo introduced to Horry County.
Foxworth went out to the airport and took photos of out-of-state license plates on employee cars and reported them to the county auditor, and he scrutinized the county's dealings with the company during public meetings.
"I see Marion as desperate and attacking a third party company to hurt them because of me, and I am sure it could get worse," DeFeo said.
Foxworth has been critical of the county's lease deal with AvCraft.But he said he doesn't want to run a negative campaign and doesn't consider AvCraft to be a big political issue.
"Unless I am attacked, I don't plan on using [AvCraft] or [DeFeo's] lack of experience in my campaign," Foxworth said.
Foxworth, a husband and father of four, works as the director of political mailings for the Carolina Mail House in Murrells Inlet and has held the District 3 County Council seat for about 2½ years.
He said he first became enamored with politics as a child watching the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago.
"I was watching that on TV and was just mesmerized," Foxworth said.
He served as speaker of the College of Charleston Student Senate and worked on his first political campaign after graduating with a political science degree in 1982.
Between 1985 and 2000, Foxworth said he worked on campaigns for 17 local referendums, such as sales taxes and bond issues, and said he was successful on all 17.
Foxworth is a Democrat in an area dominated by Republicans, but he said that doesn't mean much.
"I think party affiliation does not have a lot to do with daily governance at the local level," Foxworth said.
During his council career, Foxworth said he teamed with Myrtle Beach to eliminate additional runways at Myrtle Beach International Airport that could have disrupted nearby residential areas.
The council also created a collection of new zoning rules that will better regulate methadone clinics, concrete factories and other uses that can intrude on residents, he said.
Also in his background is a 1990 guilty plea on a misdemeanor charge of obtaining money under false pretences stemming from his role as a campaign consultant.He served 200 hours of community service.
Foxworth said he knows what the re-election race is going to focus on.
"It seems to me it is going to be entirely about my [political] record," he said."I guess that is because he doesn't have a record."
How we got here
May 10 special election is expected to resolve fall general election dispute, which left Marion Foxworth in office as District 3 Horry County councilman, although DeFeo claimed the higher vote tally.
The first time | In 2002, Foxworth defeated DeFeo with 59 percent of the vote to fill the remaining 18 months of the late Ray Brown's term.
DeFeo edged Foxworth by 32 votes, but Foxworth quickly filed a protest.
Foxworth successfully argued that a significant number of voters potentially cast their ballots in the wrong precinct.
