June 28th Runoff Elections
Voters will be able to head back to the polls starting Wednesday, June 22, 2022 to cast their ballots for the June 28th primary runoff elections.
These runoffs will decide which candidates will appear on the ballot in the November general election, after no one in those races received more than 50% of the vote plus 1, in last week’s primaries.
Everyone who voted in the June primary is eligible to cast their ballots in a runoff. However, they can only vote in the party’s runoff in which they voted in the primary, so someone who voted in the Republican primary may vote in the statewide Republican runoff and any Republican runoffs applicable to the area where they live. People who did not vote in the June primary can also vote in either party’s runoffs, but they have to pick one, as they cannot vote in both.
Under South Carolina’s new election law, early in-person voting will be available this week from Wednesday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with at least one early voting site open in each county. Voters will need to bring their photo ID or voter registration card.
