'I have not missed one vote'

“I have not missed one vote since we’ve been married; that’s 56 years,” said Dan Shively, 78, a Republican voter, referring to his wife who drove him to the Overbook Baptist Church precinct in Greenville “We looked up who we voted for the first time, and we’re just following through with that as the runoff goes. Voting is a privilege and a responsibility that we have and we need to exercise it being citizens of this country.”

'We have to come out and vote'

“If we want change in our representatives, we have to come out and vote and make sure that we are making a difference with what we want,” said Kim Harris, 48, a Republican voter after casting her ballot at the Overbook Baptist Church precinct in Greenville.

“Get people in there that we want to make the changes that we want," she said. "The wasteful spending we have in Columbia, and even in GreenvilleCounty with county council, that’s been a big thing for me.”

Today is primary runoff day

Today is South Carolina's primary runoff election.

Voter turnout for the runoff is predicted to be lower than the turnout for the primary election on June 11.

Early voting result totals

Last week, early voting in South Carolina was held for the statewide runoffs from June 19 through June 21.

During that time, 2,921 voters in Greenville County cast their ballot, with 2,225 early voters in Anderson County and 874 voters in Spartanburg County.

Candidates who did not earn the majority of the vote in the June 11 primary necessary to secure their party’s nomination must face off in the runoff.

In South Carolina, a candidate must earn 50% plus one to be deemed the winner. The runoff winners move on to the November general election.
