Voters in Orangeburg, Calhoun and Bamberg counties voted in statewide primary races Tuesday.

In the Republican governor’s race, residents of the three counties chose Gov. Henry McMaster. In the Democratic race, James Smith came out on top.

Republican voters selected Mark Hammond for secretary of state and Alan Wilson for attorney general.

In addition to voting for various offices and seats, primary voters also had two questions on their ballots.

In the Democratic primary, the “yes” or “no” questions were:

• Do you support passing a state law allowing doctors to prescribe medical marijuana to patients?

• Do you support passing a state law requiring the governor of South Carolina to accept all federal revenues offered to support Medicaid and Medicaid expansion efforts in the state?

Most voters chose “yes” for both questions.

The “yes” or “no” questions on the Republican primary ballot were:

• Do you believe that voters should have the option to choose to affiliate with a political party when they register to vote or change their voter registration in South Carolina?

• Do you believe that South Carolina's tax code should be brought into conformity with the new Trump tax cuts in the federal tax code for maximum simplification and to lower the overall tax burden on South Carolina taxpayers and businesses?

The majority of voters selected “yes” for both questions.

The results for each race in the three counties were:
