Here are sample ballots provided by scvotes.org for voters in Sumter County for the June 14 primary elections in South Carolina.

Polling stations will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.

According to the website, “Your ballot is for informational purposes only and may not be used as an actual ballot. Your sample ballot is a representation of what your actual ballot will look like on polling day.

“While your actual ballot may look different, your sample ballot will contain the positions and questions you can vote for at the time the sample ballot is produced. Sometimes candidates withdraw or are disqualified before an election.

“Also, if you move and update your address, your sample ballot will likely change. Sample ballots are made available approximately 100 days before an election. It’s best to check your sample ballot vote close to Election Day to check for any changes in offices and candidates.

“Your sample ballot may differ from the ballots of other voters in your constituency.

You may notice when you head to the voting booth this election season that the representative you usually vote for isn’t on your ballot.

This is because of redistricting, a process that occurs every 10 years in response to updated census data when electoral lines are moved and redrawn to ensure equal population in each district and therefore equal representation.

Redistricting does not affect constituencies, so where you will vote should not have changed.
