Sixteen towns and cities around South Carolina are holding municipal elections Tuesday. South Carolina Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire says they are taking place in 14 counties.
Possibly the biggest of Tuesday’s elections is in Columbia. Turn out at the polls is expected to be big. Roughly 1100 voters have already cast absentee ballots for mayor or city council or both. Whitmire encourages those voting to be informed.
