Two statewide races create two primaries in Berkeley County

  • Saturday, June 7, 2014

If you’re planning on voting in the June 10 primary, be sure you know whether or not you want to vote in the Republican or Democratic party, because there are hotly contested races for each as statewide candidates vie for nominations.

Polls open 7 a.m. Tuesday, June 10, and close 7 p.m. that evening.

While the county offices are challenged only on the Republican ticket, the state superintendent of education and the U.S. Senate races feature candidates on both sides of the aisle.

No candidates for state offices that represent Berkeley County — Republican or Democrat — will face opposition from their own party for the June 10 primary.

Lieutenant governor (no incumbent)

Mike Campbell

Pat McKinney
