The polls are open and will be until 7 p.m. in the runoff election to determine the next mayor of Myrtle Beach.
Voting is underway and running smoothly so far, according to officials.
City residents can cast their ballot for incumbent Mayor John Rhodes or challenger and local business woman, Brenda Bethune.
So far machines are functioning properly and no issues have been reported with voting, according to an official with Horry County Voters Registration and Elections.
City officials said some absentee ballots have come in, but they won’t be collected and tallied until later today. The polls opened in the city at 7 a.m. this morning and will be operating until 7 p.m.
On election day voters must bring a photo ID to the polling place in each city or town. This constitutes as a S.C. driver’s license, S.C. Department of Motor Vehicles ID card, a S.C. voter registration card, a federal military ID or a U.S. passport.
Both Bethune and Rhodes are out at the precincts today. The Sun News checked in with some local polls, and at 1 p.m., 600 people had voted at Fire Station No. 5 on 79th Avenue North. About 650 had voted at the Jetport 2 station, which is more than the same time during the first election, according to a poll manager.
