South Carolina election officials expect Tuesday's voter turnout to be low – despite the crowded field of 16 Republican and two Democratic candidates.
The chairman for the Beaufort County Board of Elections told WTOC that there's never a huge voter turnout for races like this, and they're actually expecting fewer voters this year, because they are just too many people running.
"We never have more than 12 or 13 percent voter turnout. I'm not expecting us to be slammed at the polls. There's a possibility, but then there are those who say 'All those Republicans, why vote?,'" said Ron Clifford, the chairman of the Beaufort County Board of Elections.
There is a precinct change. Those who normally vote at Hilton Head 2-A - the Indigo Pines voting location will need to vote at the Hilton Head library.
South Carolinians headed to the polls need to remember that they must show a photo ID. This is the second election in the state since the voter ID law went into effect.
These are some forms of acceptable identification include a South Carolina-issued driver's license, an identification card, or a temporary registration card with a picture on it.
Voters who don't have a photo ID will be allowed to vote using a paper ballot, but they will have to give a reason for not having a photo ID, as required under the voter ID law.
