SC voters return to polls for runoff contests

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Voters will return to the polls to pick their parties' choice to be South Carolina's education superintendent, while Republicans will also pick their lieutenant governor nominee.
Turnout for Tuesday's primary runoffs is expected to be light. Just 16 percent of the state's registered voters cast ballots in the June 10 primary.
The Republican ballot features two statewide races: Henry McMaster versus Mike Campbell for lieutenant governor, and Molly Spearman versus Sally Atwater for superintendent.
The Democratic ballot pits Sheila Gallagher against Tom Thompson for superintendent.
The polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Registered voters who skipped the primary can still cast ballots in the runoff.
What's not allowed is party switching between the two contests. People who voted June 10 must vote in the same party's runoff.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
