Edgefield County Winners in Primaries

(12:00 p.m. June 10) – The Director of Voter Registration commented this morning that it was a “heavy” turnout in Edgefield County on Tuesday for the two Primaries, Democratic and Republican, that were held in this county.  Dir. Tricia Butler also said it would be attributed to the fact of a Sheriff’s race ongoing here, that “whenever we have a Sheriff’s race, there is a big turnout.”

In the Republican Primary, among the winners were: US Senate, Lindsey Graham with a total of 2496 votes; State Senate, Shane Massey, 2794; Sheriff, Jody Rowland with 1921 and County Council seat for District 5 (a three-way race), 525 was the winning number for Scott Cooper.

In the Democratic Primary, Roosevelt Young won in the Sheriff’s Race with 1770 votes. U.S. House race saw Hosea Cleveland with the winning numbers of 1078.

Today, June 10, Voter Registration does not know if any races qualify for a run-off, but that information will be available on June 11.The full layout of candidates and precinct votes attributed to each will be published in the June 17 print edition of The Edgefield Advertiser.

These are unofficial totals in this article.

    My honest opinion Dexter Bowman or Randy Duran should have the jobs they have they should be fired and every case they were directly involved in should be looked into because they are both dirty

    The first thing that needs to be investigated is your own police officers like Dexter Bowman and Randy Duran who falsifies police reports and coerce witnesses not to give statements and that also endorse criminal activity by ignoring the law edgefield sheriff’s department has bad cops and superiors that ignore the facts and who fail to do their jobs it’s time to clean up this department and I’m behind the one wanting to do just that my opinion is that Brenda carpenter is not the proper person for this job I’m more inclined to believe Mr young is the sheriff that edgefield needs
