(COLUMBIA, S.C.) – All polling precincts across the state are open for voting. This includes the 15 counties using electronic touch screen voting machines for the first time. The majority of the state’s polling places opened on time at 7:00 a.m.
In Greenville County, 135 out of 137 precincts opened on-time and voters are casting ballots on the touch screen machines. In the remaining two precincts, voters are currently casting paper ballots, while election commission representatives assist the poll workers with opening the touch screen machines. We expect that those precincts will be using the touch screen machines by mid-morning.
