GEORGETOWN COUNTY — Election Day results trickled into the Georgetown County Elections Office on Tuesday night, though thousands of ballots were cast early in the county.

When absentee voting closed Monday, the Georgetown County in-person absentee total was more than 14,000, said the county’s public information officer Jackie Broach. The county has about 47,000 registered voters and more than 36,900 cast votes in the General Election, amounting to about a 78 percent voter turnout.

“I have heard some minor issues throughout the day – the usual things that happen every election, like machines going down temporarily and I think an ambulance was called for one person who might have fainted standing in line,” Broach said.

“Aside from that, tensions have been higher than usual with some arguments between people in line over masks, but I’m not aware of anything major. We’re hearing turnout has been high, as anticipated, at polling locations countywide.”

Contested local elections include the county’s board of education and the sheriff’s races. All votes will be certified Friday. Here are results from Georgetown County voters, according to the election office's unofficial results:
