First reporting: Voters return to the polls from today to finish up picking their party's candidates for the general election this fall. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Democrats in Charleston County's District 8 are the only ones who have settle a runoff for their new County Council seat. Republicans, however, have a bit more work to do.

Republican voters will be deciding candidate's fates in four statewide races including the gubernatorial runoff between state Rep. Nikki Haley of Lexington and U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett of Westminster, candidates for lieutenant governor, superintendent of education and attorney general. In the regional realm, they'll also be voting on who will fill the 1st Congressional District seat and who will become the next Berkeley County supervisor.
