Earlier in the evening at about 9 p.m. commissioner Josh Dickard said he thought the problem would be solved quickly and the bulk of the results would become available very soon.
In Colleton County, which has a piece of the Patsy Knight/Ed Carter race, the results are in. Three of the three precincts involved show 55.6 percent of the vote for Ed Carter and 44.4 percent for Patsy Knight. The totals are 541-432.
School Bond Referendum supporters who had poll watchers at each precinct are reporting that the first question in the referendum has passed and that the question on the aquatics center is too close to call. Because no official votes have been made available, these results have not been verified.

Dubose Middle was slowly winding down after 7 p.m. while Alston, Bethany and Knightsville were closed up tight on time at 7 p.m.Turnout overall was running well over 50 percent with some precincts as high as 75 percent before poll closings

A glitch in the card reader that decodes the election results is holding up the publishing of precinct totals tonight. So far none have been released. As of 10 p.m. results were still unavailable and election commission workers were on the phone with technical support trying to solve the problem.
A message now appears on the Dorchester Votes website that reads: "Result reports have been delayed temporarily. Keep checking back for updates."
