SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Voters head to the polls Tuesday to chose which candidates will appear on the November ballot for local, state and federal positions.

There are a few hot races including the US Senate seat held by Lindsey Graham.

Graham faces six challengers who say he is not conservative enough and too willing to compromise with Democrats.

Graham has touted his challenges to the administration on Benghazi and Obamacare.

A state education superintendent race is also a crowded field.

Politics chair at Converse College Joe Dunn said there are not burning local issues or standout candidates to draw voters to the polls.

He also expects Graham to avoid a runoff and the election will have implications.

"I'm not saying the death knell of the TEA Party but they're suffering badly," Dunn said.
