COLUMBIA, SC (WSPA) – If you’re planning on voting in the upcoming runoff races next week, the State Election Committee wants to make sure you’re well informed. 

Not everyone is eligible to vote in the in runoffs.

If you voted in the Republican Party primary, or you didn’t vote in any June 12 primary, you will be able to vote in the the statewide runoffs for governor and attorney general on June 26.

However if you voted on the Democratic Party ticket on June 12, you will not be able to vote in the statewide runoffs. 

Only some Democrat voters will have a runoff to vote in, since there is no statewide DemocraticParty election. Those who can vote will depend on their county.

The State Election Committee encourages you to check your sample ballot at scVotes.org to determine if you eligible to vote in any runoff.
