There will be a dearth of local races on Tuesday’s partisan primary ballots, though there will be a number of statewide or federal races in which Democrats and Republicans can vote.
Outside of those races, the Democratic ballot and the Republican ballot each will contain “yes or no” advisory questions on which voters can make their preferences known.
On the Democratic primary ballot, there will be three advisory questions. They are:
• Do you believe each state -- not Congress -- shall decide for itself whether to allow online gaming and determine how to regulate online gaming in their state?
• The South Carolina Department of Transportation estimates more than $20 billion is required fix South Carolina’s crumbling roads and bridges. Should gaming laws be modernized to fund repairs instead of a tax increase?
