Are You Eligible to Vote in the June 24 Runoffs?

Posted on: Mon, 06/23/2008 - 14:37 By: cwhitmire

South Carolina voters will head to the polls again on Tuesday, June 24, to vote in the Primary Runoffs, but not all voters will have the opportunity to vote. There is no statewide office on the ballot, so there are areas of the state where no runoffs are taking place. Also, voters who voted in one party's primary on June 10, are restricted from voting in another party's runoff. This means some voters will have a runoff in their county or district but will not be eligible to vote due to this restriction.

How to determine whether you are eligible to vote in the Primary Runoff:

2008 Primary Runoffs by County

Posted on: Sat, 06/14/2008 - 10:57 By: cwhitmire

Below is a list of runoffs to be held on June 24, 2008.

In primaries, winners are determined by majority, which means the winner must receive more than 50% of the votes cast for that office. When no candidate receives 50%, the contest is decided between the two candidates with the highest vote totals in a runoff two weeks after the primary.
