Absentee voting for Republican runoff is open through Monday

Posted

In-house absentee voting for the June 26 primary runoffs is open today from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be open weekdays through Monday only at the Sumter County Voter Registration and Elections Office, located on the first floor of the Sumter County Courthouse, 141 N. Main St., Room 114.

Friday is the deadline to apply for absentee ballots by mail. They must be returned to the office by 7 p.m. on June 26.

Elections for this runoff are for the Republican ballot only, as there were no Democratic races either in Sumter or statewide that apply to Sumter that did not have an outright winner in the primary.

Only those who voted on the Republican ticket and those who did not vote in the primary can vote in this runoff.

Sumterites will see two races: Gov. Henry McMaster and challenger John Warren for governor and Attorney General Alan Wilson and challenger Todd Atwater for attorney general.

If you voted in the Democratic primary on June 12, there are no runoffs for you to vote in.

If you voted in the Republican primary on June 12, you can vote in the runoff.

If you did not vote at all on June 12, you can vote in the runoff.

All regular precincts and polls will be open on June 26 for the runoff.
