The Lake House polling location closed promptly at 7:00 pm this evening.  A total of 74% of Seabrookers voted, including absentee and early voters.

Below is a summary of the major races.  The numbers reflect only those who voted in person today.  The tabulation of the absentee and early voters will be sometime after Thursday when the Election Commission meets.

The compete list of all the races is posted on the Lake House window as you walk in the front door.  Several candidates ran in multiple parties.  Those are denoted by parentheses.

It is interesting to note that the tabulations are on both a flash drive and on tape.  George Rheinhart will be driving the flash drive up to North Charleston this evening.  The tape is a back up of the information.

A big thanks to all the poll workers.  They were there from 6:00 am to set up until 8:00 pm to put everything away.  They couldn’t leave the building and had to bring their lunch and snacks.
