Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. (A) The Horry County Board of Education must be composed of those members selected in the manner provided by this act. For the purposes of this act, the single-member election districts from which members of the Horry County Council are elected also constitute the election districts from which members of the board must be elected and these county Board of Education single-member election districts must have the same numerical designations as the county council election districts. In the 1990 general election, one member must be elected to the board from districts 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, and 10 by the qualified electors of each respective district for terms of four years and until each successor is elected and qualifies, and one member must be elected to the board from districts 8, 9, and 11 by the qualified electors of each respective district for terms of two years and until each successor is elected and qualifies. The present members of the board who are residents of districts 4 and 5 and the present member of the board who is a resident of district 8 whose current term expires in 1992 shall also continue to serve as members of the board until the expiration of their current terms in 1992.
(B) In the 1992 general election, in addition to the successors to the members elected to the board in the 1990 election from districts 8, 9, and 11, one member must also be elected to the board from districts 4 and 5 by the qualified electors of each respective district for terms of four years and until each successor is elected and qualifies. The successors to the members elected in 1990 and 1992 must be elected in the same manner at the general election every two or four years thereafter for terms of four years.
(C) A member of the board elected from a defined single-member district must be a resident of that election district and must be elected by the qualified electors of that district. Vacancies must be filled by appointment of the board until the next scheduled election at which time the vacancy must be filled for the remainder of the unexpired term or for a new full term as the case may be.
(D) The board shall elect a chairman and those other officers it considers necessary from among its membership for terms as officers as set by the board.
