Final Results | Sumter County, Saluda County runoff elections

There were six runoff races in the Midlands on Tuesday.

SUMTER COUNTY, S.C. — The final results are in for a group of unresolved Midlands elections that went to runoffs.

The contests were in Saluda and Sumter Counties. Five races had to go to a runoff in Sumter after the November 8 election, while just one did in Saluda. There were no runoffs in the other Midlands counties.

In Sumter, voters picked the final four slots on the county's nine-member school board. Even before Tuesday, there was already significant change, as five members who were on the board will not be coming back.  That's after four members lost on election night and one chose not to seek re-election. And that's now going to be seven, after two more incumbents lost in these runoffs.

There was also a race for the city council's Ward One seat. 

In Saluda, Mayor Amelia Herlong lost to councilmember Miliken Matthews in the race to lead the city. Neither of them got 50 percent of the vote on election night. The two were separated by just three votes in the earlier election--242 to 245 in favor of Matthews. 

The results for each race can be found below:
