Find out if there’s a runoff in your district, and check out our medical cannabis voter guide.
In South Carolina’s June 9 primary, no candidate topped 50% of the vote in three state Senate and eight state House districts. Those races head to a runoff tomorrow — Tuesday, June 23. If you live in one of the districts headed to a runoff, check out our voter guide and make a plan to vote.
The districts with runoffs are:
S.C. Senate districts: 16 (Republican), 33 (Republican), and 39 (Democrat)
S.C. House districts: 3 (Republican), 5 (Republican), 35 (Republican), 64 (Democrat), 88 (Republican), 99 (Republican), 109 (Democrat), and 115 (Democrat)
If you don’t know your districts, you can find them at SCVotes.org. SCVotes.org also provides information on your polling place and a sample ballot that lists every primary runoff you can vote on — this may include other offices, such as sheriff or county council. (The full list of runoffs, organized by county, is here.)
If you voted on June 9, you can only vote in the runoff of the party you selected for that primary. If you did not vote on June 9, you can vote in either party’s runoff. Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
If you live in a district with a S.C. House or S.C. Senate runoff, check out our voter guide here to learn about the candidates’ stances on medical cannabis.
Please spread the word. These elections could be extremely close — two primary races were so close they resulted in recounts.
