No live thread yet, so I'm starting one.
Voted at 2:30 p.m. in Mt Pleasant 19. No line. Poll worker reported 28.3% turnout so far in a precinct that had a 66% turnout in the last major election.
Results should be here after the polls close.
Turnout Buzz in S.C.

Mount Pleasant, S.C. Forecasting tight elections a few hours before results come in might as well be South Carolinas official sport. But its still hard to resist throwing data out there for analysis. So heres a bit: A Republican political operative from the state tells me that turnout in Dorchester County is currently at about 14 percent, and that the Republican bean-counters expect it to reach 20 percent by 7 p.m. Eastern. They say strong Republican precincts in that county have turnout thats slightly above the county average. And in Mount Pleasant, a Charleston suburb that should be a stronghold for Mark Sanford, the former GOP governor, turnout is also high. Thats all good news for Sanford. But Ill temper this with a reminder that its a special election in South Carolina and its still anyones game.
Thanks for the info. I’ll be watching this one closely.
Not helpful yet but may be after the polls close.
OK, polls are now closed. Votes should commence rolling in soon at this site: http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/files/elections/2013/by_county/SC_US_House_0507.html?SITE=CSPANELN&SECTION=POLITICS
I believe Mark is a distant relative of the NC liberal Terry Sanford.
If you meant Tony Weiner, his problem wasn't so much cheating in an election as it was photographing his package and sending it via email to strange women all over the country.
Then more dead ones will show up to vote in the off-year elections.
Only Berkeley and Colleton Counties starting to report so far.
Sanford 52%/ Rat 48% total.
Sanford won Colleton County (very small county) 70% to 29%
Elizabeth Colbert Busch (D) leads Mark Sanford (R) 54.0%-45.5% with 3% reporting #SC1 http://huff.to/13fLG8C via @huffpostpol #tcot
Not good, but she’s been boosted by her base county. Sanford will come back, right?
Yes it is.
And "holder's people" are here to make sure it's fair.
I believe so. She’s not doing all that well in Charleston county.
42% reporting. Sanford up by 5.
Waiting for the Lib claim that the “election” was stolen from Colbert’s sissy because the early returns showed her ahead.
They cab cast a provisional vote if they have no ID.
Looks like Sanford is pulling away, ahead in all counties at this point.
oh please keep me updated, we have to win this to stop the socialist agenda
