Polls will be open across the state Tuesday to determine the winners of three statewide Republican primaries, one Democratic statewide primary, and one Horry County Council race.

Here are some things to know as you head to the polls, according to SCVotes.org and the Horry County election board.

Q. If I voted in one party's primary on June 10, can I vote in the other party's runoff on June 24?

A. No. If you voted in one party's primary, you can vote only in the runoff of the same party.

Q. I didn't vote on June 10. Can I vote in the runoff?

A. Yes. If you were eligible but did not vote on June 10, you can vote in either party's runoff.

Q. I missed the May 10 voter registration deadline for the June 10 primaries, but I registered before May 24. Can I vote in the runoff?

A. No. There is no new voter registration deadline for the runoffs. To be eligible to participate in the primary and/or the runoffs, you must have registered by May 10.

Q. What hours will the polls be open?

A. Polling places will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. As long as you are in line by 7 p.m., you will be allowed to vote.

Q. Where can I find the results in Horry County. The Horry County Government & Justice Center multi-purpose rooms will not be open for public viewing of the results. Results will be posted as they are available at www.MyrtleBeachOnline.com or go to www.HorryCounty.org.
