Voters Return to Polls for Runoffs

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Polls are now open for voters to pick their party nominees in a handful of runoffs.

Turnout for Tuesday's primary runoffs is expected to be light. Just 16 percent of the state's registered voters cast ballots in the June 10 primary.

The Republican ballot features two statewide races: Henry McMaster versus Mike Campbell for lieutenant governor, and Molly Spearman versus Sally Atwater for superintendent.

The Democratic ballot pits Sheila Gallagher against Tom Thompson for superintendent.

In local Midlands races, Kershaw County residents will pick the GOP nominee for county council chairman, while in Lexington County, voters will decide the County Council Seat Eight Republican nominee.

Registered voters who skipped the primary can still cast ballots in the runoff. What's not allowed is party switching between the two contests. People who voted June 10 must vote in the same party's runoff.

Voters will be required to have a driver's license, a DMV issued photo ID, a passport, federal military ID or a voter registration card with a photo. You can find your polling place by visiting the page.

Polls are open until 7 p.m.
