[image-1]The number of signs for Statehouse, County Council, and Congressional candidates that’ve popped up on street corners this week can only mean one thing: It’s primary day.

Local and state districts across the tri-county area have primaries today, including the 1st Congressional District, where state Sen. Jenny Horne is challenging Congressman Mark Sanford for the GOP nom. Candidates from both parties are also vying to fill seats left open by outgoing legislators, including state Sens. Paul Thurmond, Ray Cleary, Jenny Horne, and outgoing state Reps. Chip Limehouse and Mary Tinkler.

Polls are open until 7 p.m. this evening. Visit SCVotes.org to find out who’s on a ballot in your precinct.
