Another Election Day is rolling around, as Republican voters head to the polls Tuesday in the runoff for the 1st Congressional District.
Former Gov. Mark Sanford and former Charleston County Councilman Curtis Bostic are squaring off for the chance to be the Republican nominee.
The winner will face Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch on May 7.
Voters should remember to bring their photo IDs and remember that some polling locations at schools were adjusted for this special election: voters at Summerville High School will use the ROTC building instead of the cafeteria and voters at Alston Middle School will use the gym instead of the front lobby.
Also, voters in the Germantown precinct, who usually vote at Cornerstone Baptist Church, will instead vote at Bethany United Methodist Church.
Sanford and Bostic are both emphasizing their conservative credentials, with Sanford pointing to his record of cutting spending while governor and Bostic pointing to his record of no tax increases while on council as well as his work to bring jobs to the area.
