Who, What Is on My Ballot?

To see your local sample ballot, type your address into Vote411.org a site hosted by the League of Women Voters. It provides nonpartisan data on 2018 races and candidates by jurisdiction that will show up on your ballot.

There are multiple races to consider statewide and across the Tri-County:

U.S. Congress - All 435 House seats are up for grabs this election. Democrats need to win 24 seats to regain control. There are seven congressional districts in SC and all eyes are on the Lowcountry’s First Congressional Race where Katie Arrington unseated longtime politician Mark Sanford.

SC Governor - will be decided for the first time like President and Vice President with both Gov., Lt Gov. showing on one ticket.

Attorney General - Republican Incumbent Alan Wilson Face’s Democrat Constance Anastopoulo

Secretary of State - Incumbent Republican Mark Hammond faces Democrat Melvin Whittenburg, a retired Army major.

Treasurer - Incumbent Republican Curtis Loftis faces Democratic challenger Rosalyn Glenn.

Superintendent of Education - Republican Molly Spearman is close to a lock for a second term after her Democratic opponent dropped out of the race.

Area county council seats, as well as school board posts are also up for grabs this Tuesday. Please visit ‘Quintins Close-Ups’ in your iHeartRadio App for in-depth Interviews with many of these candidates.

An Amendment to our State constitution allowing our Governor to appoint SC’s Superintendent of Education will also be on your ballot. If the amendment passes, the governor would make that Cabinet pick starting in 2023, with confirmation from the state Senate.
