Voter Turnout Mixed in the Midlands
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — Amid heavy wind, rain and a Saturday, voters’ presence at the polls in the Midlands was unpredictable. Many polling places described crowds using the following words: light, heavy, moderate, extremely slow, and pretty good. However, as much as the reviews vary, the one constant was the rain. As much as a three quarters of an inch of rain has fallen. “The fact that the citizens of South Carolina are turning out to vote in what has been a stormy day in many parts of the state is a testament to their dedication to making their voices heard by casting their ballots,” said Executive Director of the S.C. State Election Commission.
