MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) - The ballot is crowded as voters head to the polls in Berkeley County to cast their votes in the Republican primary for sheriff.

Media outlets report that there are 14 names on the GOP primary ballot in Tuesday’s voting.

Former sheriff Wayne DeWitt resigned in February just before he was indicted on charges of drunken driving, leaving the scene of a crash and failing to stop for police in an incident in December.

If none of the candidates gets a majority in Tuesday’s voting, the top two finishers meet in a runoff in two weeks. The eventual primary winner faces Democrat Anthony Smalls in the June 9 general election.
