The 1st Congressional District in South Carolina is holding its primary elections today. There are 16 Republican and 2 Democratic nominees. That crowded field will be heavily reduced upon the completion of these elections.
Here’s all you need to know about today’s primaries:
- Polls close at 7 pm.
- Eligible voters (those registered in District 1) could vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries, but not both.
- The top vote-getter only wins their primary if they earn 50% of the vote.
- If no one hits that mark, the top two vote-getters will move on to a second primary on April 2nd.
- Regardless the General Election between both parties will be on May 7th.
And here are the latest headlines:
